Safety and Approval Forms

The Safety and Approval Forms are currently being updated as a result of teacher feedback.

Once you have filled in the form, your teacher will check it, sign it and either say you can start or they may need to send it to mstf.approval@gmail.com to get approval.

Some projects may require special safety awareness, for example using Potting Mix.

Approval Dates

Approval applications will need to be completed by 31st May,
