Safety & Risk Assessments Outdoors

Outdoor learning and play has additional risks accompanying it by nature. Our approach to risk management is:


  • We will follow a high adult to child ratio while off site with the children. 

  • We have a system for travelling to and from local destinations to ensure safety at all times. 

  • A member of our management team attends all locations before a visit is made with the children; this is to assess and manage risks. Dynamic risk assessment is used through offsite experiences, allowing for changes in the environment e.g weather etc. 

  • When it comes to children in the natural environment, we will assess each situation with the approach that if the benefit to the child outweighs the risk taken, we will allow them to do it. This builds resilience and autonomy for the child, powerful and important life skills. 

  • Our staff are knowledgeable about the natural environment, ensuring they can manage and assess risk in a range of outdoor areas.
