Dear Mr Bradshaw

Further to my earlier email on this topic ,I have just noticed 3 serious safety faults with the Lightning protection test results at the subject title.

1. There is only one earthing (grounding point) on the whole system, which beggars belief.

2. Surge Protection has not been fitted which compromise child and teacher safety using the telephone/computer system during a thunderstorm.

3. Lightning Risk Assessment on generic RA form and does not comply to BS/EN /62305 requirements. Risk Assessment shall be site specific.

I fully understand this school is outside your remit, but it would appear the Devon County Council are compromising public safety ref thunderstorms

I call upon my MP for urgent action

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan m Dransfield
