Tor School has a duty to ensure that buildings under their control comply with the statutory and regulatory standards. The school needs to consider the building’s:
• Condition – focussing on the physical state of the premises to ensure safe and continuous operations as well as other issues involving building regulations and other non-education centric statutory requirements.
• Suitability – focussing on the quality of the premises to meet curriculum or management needs and other issues impacting on the role of the school in raising educational standards.
The school premises are monitored by the caretaking staff, who liaise with the staff responsible for health and safety and with the headteacher, responsible for support staff.
