PAT My School

PAT My School

Not-For-Profit PAT Testing for all schools and Public Sector organisations including the NHS.

PAT My School is a long-term project for PAT My Cottage, the business was founded in South Devon and the main focus of PAT My Cottage has been to support support all areas of the Tourism Sector in the South West.  We now support charities, public bodies and schools and have made significant changes to our operating procedures as a result of the COVID-19 virus. 

Portable Appliance Testing is only one element of providing a safe and secure environment for your children, staff and volunteers, but, arguably, one of the most important.  We have already conducted PAT Testing in Pre-Schools, Primary and Secondary Schools, we have a wealth of education experience in our management team, including teachers and education mentors (; we completely understand your environment, your risks and your financial constraints.

With immediate effect, all our School PAT Testing will be conducted at cost price and the purpose of this is two-fold: 

   1.  Like many businesses the COVID-19 virus has impacted our own work, by offering cost-price School PAT Testing we hope to continue to support Tourism, Charities and Schools through the difficult times ahead.  

   2.  The second reason is incredibly important for you and your school, we understand that many schools are due to be tested in the summer holidays, we would like to spread out the testing and financial burden for you.

We have consulted with the H&S executive and have developed a testing programme which will safeguard your annual testing date, even if we conduct your testing several weeks before you re-open for teaching. 

Like our PAT My Charity project, PAT My School started even before we went public with the programme.  If you want to join us please fill in the form below and provide as much information as possible.  If you are a member of the school support staff, teaching staff or a concerned parent, please pass on this information to the relevant person in your school.  We would like to invite as many schools as possible to take up the offer of School PAT Testing at cost-price. 

Whilst we are based in South Devon, we conduct School PAT Testing testing across the South West and have engineers even further afield.
