A sample of 278 head teachers of children aged between three and 11 years in North Staffordshire were sent a postal questionnaire to determine the manner and extent to which they were involved in accident prevention. The majority of respondents agreed that accident prevention was a suitable subject to be taught in schools. However, a minority felt that they had enough background information or training on the subject. First-aid instruction was particularly requested. Levels of reporting and management of individual accident cases varied. It is desirable that guidelines are agreed on accident reporting, the role of the school medical service in accident prevention and the supervision of children during recreation periods.
