Information for teachers

Planning your visit

We already have a child protection policy, public liability insurance and risk assessments for all of our activities and spaces. As part of these risk assessments we are reliant on schools providing the following:

  • Adult supervision (a minimum of 1 adult to 8 students for ages 3+), with a minimum of 2 adults to be with the group at all times.
  • Medical or First Aid provision for all students, including the means to administer specialised care for those with specific medical needs.
  • Individual risk assessments for your group.
