Reminder of the importance of skylight protection

A head teacher who took students who had been drinking on to a school roof before one fell has been found guilty of failing to ensure their safety.



John Summerfield had told the pupils to avoid the skylight

Mr Murray, then aged 18, placed his foot on the skylight, tumbled through and landed in the corridor 2.5m (8ft) below.
The court heard Summerfield had given the teenagers a verbal warning not to walk near the skylight but had wanted to show them some of the renovations to the school building. He was one of the only keyholders for a locked door which was opened so the students could access the roof. The prosecution argued that, once the locked door was opened, the principal no longer demonstrated "reasonable care".
