Questions & Answers

There may be times when external organisations or speakers ask permission to use your school’s facilities.

Your school provides a safe environment where children can access a rich variety of learning opportunities outside school hours. These are often provided by external organisations such as sports and arts clubs, extra tuition in mainstream subjects and religious and cultural education. Opportunities such as these can boost children’s attainment and support learning in school.

The overwhelming majority of the groups and events provided by external organisations are beneficial to the community and play an important role in integrating the school into everyday community life. Occasionally, however, a group or event might be used to express extremist views. You need to be sure that external providers have robust safeguarding policies and have arrangements in place for checking the suitability of staff and volunteers before granting permission for them to use your school’s facilities.
