Health and safety considerations

Research has shown that high quality, well-designed furniture improves concentration and reduces misbehaviour, leading to better learning outcomes, so it is worth taking the time to make the right decision for your pupils.

Schools should be aware that the British Standard for school furniture (BSEN1729), is advisory and not mandatory.

To ensure that your pupils receive the best possible opportunity to learn in a safe and comfortable environment, you should always double check that your supplier conforms to these standards.
