    Keeping children safe as a teacher, and how to claim accident at work compensation

    As a teacher it is your number one job to keep the children in your care safe, with educating them coming up a close second. Obviously what a teacher is supposed to do is teach, but you also have to be aware that you are there to look after these children for the duration of the day, and that it is far better that they are kept safe and healthy than that they learn the lesson that you are trying to teach them that day.

    After all, you get more chances to teach children what they need to know, but you only get one chance to keep them safe. Here are some tips on looking after children at school, and keeping them safe.

    • Look out for them. Make sure that you always have an eye on your class and know what they are doing. Some classes will be more difficult to control than others, but as long as you know that your main goal is to watch out for your students at all times then you should be able to keep all of the children safe.
    • Train them for tasks. Before you do any task in class, make sure that you have given adequate time to learn any health and safety issues and learn how to use the equipment correctly. If you don’t feel that students have made enough effort to learn how to do something, don’t let them do it.
    • Give demonstrations. Students often find that it is easier to learn how to do something if it is demonstrated first, and there is no harm in taking a few extra minutes at the beginning of the class to do a demonstration. Perhaps work closely with one child for the demonstration, as kids are more likely to watch carefully if one of their own is taking part.
