The Leader: Academy Schools – Summer 2015
The spring edition of The Academy Leader looks at the importance of a positive risk culture in an academy. It identifies why academies that successfully develop a positive risk culture will reap the rewards, and accidents and reputational damage will be less likely.
In addition, we look at the impact the abolition of the paper driving licence may have on how academies check an employee’s driving record; we also explain why the summer buildings works that are currently happening at many academy campuses across the country attract specific kind of risks and how they need to be managed.
Finally, you will find a Q&A with Paula Cook, head of client services (general insurance) for the education practice at Marsh. Paula provides us with an insight into her career background, talks us through her role supporting academies to ensure their insurance cover is always relevant to their specific needs, and why regular business continuity planning exercises should feature high on the agenda of every academy.
