Drinking water quality

Clean, safe water must be provided at schools, especially for drinking. Poor-quality water can cause illness, and children are at the highest risk. Schools are either on town water supply or ‘self-supplying’. If you are self-supplying, then, as a board of trustees, you need to manage the quality of your water. Local authorities are responsible for water quality for schools on town supply.
