The ratio of adults to children on any outing will never be less than Ofsted requirements.
Where possible and practicable we will carry out a trial run and full risk assessment of the proposed outing, noting opening times, car parking arrangements and toilets/nappy changing facilities etc.
I obtain written parental permission for children to take part in regular, local outings whilst in our care and specific written permission for a longer outing.
I will 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 of our own and any other vehicles in which children are transported, including insurance details and a list of named drivers, and will make these available to parents.
I make parents aware of what we will do in the event of a lost child (please refer to our Lost Child policy).
