Advice sent to Islington schools following the HSE report on the Glenridding Tragedy

Anne Jago made this Freedom of Information request to Islington Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

In 2005, the HSE published a report with recommendations following the Glenridding school trip tragedy.

The HSE investigation of the tragedy said that there were lessons to be learned both by those who lead educational visits to high hazard environments and by those involved in their management. The HSE said it was important that these lessons should be widely disseminated.

The DfES/DCSF will have brought the HSE recommendations to your attention and to the attention of Islington schools.

Please can I see copies of what you and your schools were sent by the DfES/DCSF? Can I also see copies of anything that you as an authority sent to schools on this subject?

Yours faithfully
Anne Jago

Cooke, Peter, Islington Borough Council
