"Risk is a hot topic in education, and the source of a great deal of professional confusion and anxiety. Tim Gill charts a way through the stormy waters towards a more thoughtful, balanced approach"

 

taken from this article .... Putting risk in perspective

 

found on a site which I am still to fully explore but think it may be helpful.

Very much so - also this document which is mentioned in the article..

 

Managing risk in play provision

 

Which I've saved to my hard drive for later reading - really want to stretch our outdoor provision to be a bit more 'risky' - without being dangerous!

Hi - I was lucky enough to see Tim Gill speaking at a "Risky Play" course last year. It was really interesting and I do agree with a lot of what he says (we also had the chance to engage in some interesting & 'risky' play experiences!) He said that he thought that "good parenting is the art of benign neglect " (or words to that effect!) which is very true but not quite so easy to embrace in the workplace!! It's one thing benignly neglecting your own children but not so sure all our parents wouldbe so understanding! : )
