Concerns for public safety at Forches Cross School

Headmaster at Forches Cross School

Dear Mr Wisken

Further to my earlier email expressing my concerns for the public safety at your school.

I have just noticed another serious anomaly on your Lightning Certificate .

In particular, your Certificate of 5/12/13 stated there were many items requiring bonding (ie equipotentional ) and on the bottom of the sheet it stated (works undertaken to address).

However, on your certificate 2014 and 2016 the Certificate claim this to be an OPEN ISSUE. Certificate for 2015 was not included.

In a nutshell Sir, your school appears to be deploying teachers to undertake risk assessment for all facets which is a very dangerous precedence; teachers teach, engineers and technicians conduct risk assessment.

It is fairly obvious from your LPS Certificates and Risk Assessment Sheet RA 03 that your school and you in particular are failing your duty of care to protect the children and staff at your school from lightning and other serious H&S issues, ie,Asbestos, Legionella, etc.

For the avoidance of doubt, I will attend your school premises and point out these life threatening faults free of charge.

For your information, action and files

Yours sincerely


Alan Dransfield
