Completing Risk Assessments For Visiting Classes.
When organising any visit it is always the responsibility of the school to complete their own risk assessment, taking into account the needs of the individual children in the group. The teacher in charge should make a preparatory visit to the site before bringing a class. We consider the site to be reasonably safe, provided children are warned of the risks and take notice of the instructions they are given. Listed below are many of the identified risks and the actions that can be taken to reduce these to an acceptable level. Although there is a First Aid Kit in the Stables Block, we recommend that group leaders each carry a small kit with them when they are taking children around the site. It is also sensible for group leaders to exchange mobile phone numbers with each other, with the guide from the Heritage Centre and the teacher in charge of the visit.
