Health and safety in schools

Accident and incident reporting in schools

Community and voluntary controlled schools 

You're required to report relevant accidents and incidents on AssessNET (link opens in new window), which is our online accident and incident reporting system.

See our accident, incident and near miss guidance for details of the requirements, responsibilities and reporting process.

You may download an accident report form, to gather information and document your investigation prior to uploading to AssessNET. We no longer provide schools with pre-printed accident books.

Academies, foundation/trust, voluntary aided and free schools

You have free access to the AssessNET (link opens in new window), but it's up to you to decide if you'd like to use it.
