NAHT responds to government consultation on fire safety in schools

On 17 August, NAHT signed a joint letter to the Secretary of State for Education, covering its response to the government's consultation on its non-statutory guidance in England, on 'Design for fire safety in schools: building bulletin 100' (BB100).

The letter, written by a coalition of fire safety and education organisations, urges the government 'to immediately reconsider and expand its proposals to mandate sprinklers in all new build and major refurbished school projects, not just special educational needs (SEN) schools, boarding schools and those over 11 metres.'

At the same time, NAHT submitted its formal and detailed response to the government's consultation on fire safety in schools in England

NAHT is clear in its response that the government must listen to the call from experts and commit to going further for children to ensure their safety and the protection of their schools.

The Life Members' Sector Council (LMSC)

Whether leaving a labour of love or embracing a life of leisure, there can be no doubt that retirement from school leadership marks a huge change in lifestyle. There will be adjustments to make, new challenges to take and a range of new opportunities. At a time like this, it is important that our experienced members do not lose all the support they received in their working life. Our life members’ committee is here to ensure members are supported in retirement.

This committee feeds its extensive wealth of experience and know-how to support the work of NAHT. It also gives our life members the chance to make important contributions to our campaigns for working members.  

The committee, which meets four times a year, is made up of one elected representative from each of our regions, with the addition of one place each for Northern Ireland and Wales. And these elected committee members, normally, serve a three-year term.

Areas of focus for the committee include the following: 

  • Current legislation issues eg pension provision
  • Action against discrimination, including age discrimination.
