Risk Management – Schools

Step 1 — Establish the context

Before identifying risks, first decide on the scope of the activity, including your objectives, and develop an understanding of your operating environment.

Identify your stakeholders (both internal and external) and consider their concerns, issues and expectations.

Examples of key stakeholders for schools are:

  • regional offices
  • the school community
  • local councils or shires
