Fire safety in schools

This document sets out NAHT’s response to the post-Grenfell fire-safety-in-schools debate. It also suggests what school leaders could do in their schools to maximise fire-safety steps in the meantime. 

You can use the information below to provide reassurance, where it is needed, that school leaders and their unions are being proactive in protecting children. It also helps to set a tone and narrative that you can use to construct communications to staff, pupils, parents, the governing body, the academy trust and all other stakeholders. 

Take a look at joint union guidance that answers common questions and advises on how best to review fire risk assessments to ensure you keep children and staff safe.
