If you need more information on Risk & Governance, our FAQs will be able to answer any questions you have.

Risk governance allows an educational institution to identify and define what risks are present within the organisation and manage potential future risks before becoming present. Risk governance also outlines what policies need to be in place, how to reduce risk and oversee the ways in which risk is handled in schools.

Governance within an organisation is the overall set up of rules, standards and practices that guide an institution. Knowing what your school goals are is important in setting up correct governance. Risk, on the other hand, is the task of identifying potential threats to the organisation and creating a plan to reduce or eliminate their impact.

While risk can be unpredictable and sudden, there are a few particular risks to track within schools. From governance, financial and legal risk, cyber security, data protection, accidents, fire, maintenance, visitor access and more. All of these risks have to be carefully considered and managed, for the safety of your students, staff, and facilities.

Our expert compliance team is always on hand and there to support you so that you can feel confident in the safety of your educational environment. After all, the safety of your students staff and visitors are always the first priority, and protecting your facility is an important second.
