SITE SPECIFIC DOCUMENTATION

All of the supporting documentation you'll need

One of the most common issues faced by teachers when planning trips is ensuring that all of the relevant paperwork is in place, and that the lead teacher and their assistants are fully briefed about each venue before they arrive.

Our experienced teachers have done most of this work for you. In this section you'll find a sample Risk Assessment covering all of the typical activities undertaken at Tapnell Farm Park by groups of students, along with a detailed "On The Day" Procedure which sets out everything you need to know about the site before you get there.

If there are any other mandatory considerations, such as HSE advice sheets for animal attractions or outdoor activity centres, you'll also find these below.
