To ensure that the principle conditions of the Work Experience Programme and the arrangements between the Employer and Court Moor School are fully understood, Employers are asked to confirm acceptance of the following essential points.
1. The student will carry out worthwhile and meaningful work, as described in the agreed job description. The Employer will ensure that the work is planned by a responsible person.

2. Supervision will be provided by a suitable, responsible and competent named person.
3. The Employer will ensure that the student does not operate machinery unless adequate instruction and competent supervision can be provided in order for it to be used safely. The Employer shall not require the Student to carry out work of an unsuitable or inappropriate nature. The Employer will ensure that the Student wears protective or special clothing/protective equipment as and when necessary. All prohibitions will be recorded on or attached to the Job Description / Health and Safety Statement.
4. The Employer will inform Court Moor School if there have been any significant changes since the last use of the work placement.

8. The Student’s parent or guardian will confirm that they do not suffer from any complaint which may cause a hazard either to the Student or those working with him or her. The school will be required to inform the Employer of any known details requiring special attention in order to secure a successful placement.

- Risk Assessment as necessary
12. The Employer agrees to provide reasonable access for the purpose of monitoring the student.
13. In cases of accident or sickness occurring to the Student whilst under the supervision of the Employer, the Student will be allowed to use whatever first aid facilities the Employer provides. The Employer will notify Court Moor School without delay and arrange for appropriate action to be taken.
14. The Employer will provide Court Moor School with an accident report, in writing, following any accident which causes injury to a Student on work experience and will report the accident to the enforcing authority, if appropriate, within the time limit stipulated.
Please note the following as part of the risk assessment.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations place a duty on employers and the self-employed. The duty states that the employer shall make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk to employees."
This includes employees who are classed as a child (below minimum school leaving age) and a young person (over minimum school leaving age, but under 18 years of age). Both of these definitions may be relevant to students on work experience.
In addition, "Every employer shall, before employing a child, provide the parents/guardians of the child with comprehensible and relevant information on the risks identified by the assessment and the preventative and protective measures"
