Outings Policy

Policy statement: Outings

It is my policy to keep children safe on outings whilst in my care.

In order to do this I will ensure that:

The ratio of adults to children on local outings will never be less than 1 to 5 and 1 to 3 for more involved outings. 

I carry out a trial run and full risk assessment of the proposed outing

I obtain written parental permission for children to take part in regular, local outings whilst in my care and specific written permission for a longer or more involved outing

I take essential records and equipment for each child on outings as necessary, including contact telephone numbers for parents, a first-aid kit and a mobile telephone

I keep records for parental inspection of any vehicles in which children are transported, including insurance details and a list of named drivers

I will ensure that any driver transporting children in their own vehicle has adequate insurance cover

I adhere to my lost child procedure and make parents aware of the procedures in that procedure.
