You will be excluded from class if you do not dress in strict accordance with the safety policy. You will need to follow your teachers’ instructions on the safe use of materials and equipment. It is your responsibility to follow safety regulations and report accidents or health and safety issues to either your class teacher or a senior member of staff.
