Schools trip teachers are legally required to complete a written risk assessment . It is their duty of care towards pupils and in an activity where there is an amount of risk, they will need to show that they have considered, and as a result, have taken all reasonable precautions.
It is important that teachers follow the guidelines of their particular school and Local Education Authority. It is essential that teachers make these assessments themselves but UK Study Tours has a selection of hazard information sheets and risk assessments for specific sites. This will provide information on potential hazards at a site as well as suggested precautionary measures. This will save you time and effort but only you know your pupils and only you can complete the actual risk assessment.
