Service for maintained schools
Any maintained school that purchases the LGSS HR Advisory and Policy service will automatically receive the Health, Safety and Wellbeing service at no additional charge.

Service for academies
When a school becomes an academy it will take on some additional health and safety responsibilities and further information on this is provided in Health and Safety considerations on becoming an academy.
The LGSS Health, Safety and Wellbeing Team offers a service level agreement (SLA) to academies as described in the current Services for Academies brochure which is available on the LGSS website.
The SLA will provide you with a range of support services including:
Change in circumstances
Please note: when the circumstances of an establishment change (e.g. a maintained school converts to academy status or an academy's Health, Safety and Wellbeing SLA expires), their access rights to the extranet information will be removed unless a new Health, Safety and Wellbeing SLA is entered into.
NCC educational establishments and individuals who wish to request access rights or schools and academies wishing to discuss the service can contact the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Team on: Health&Safety@northamptonshire.gov.uk
