Risk assessment


Recommended Posts

This is from the EYFS statutory framework:


Risk assessment
3.63 Providers must have a clear and well-understood policy, and procedures, for assessing any risks to children’s safety, and review risk assessments regularly. Providers must determine where it is helpful to make some written risk assessments in relation to specific issues, to inform staff practice, and to demonstrate how they are managing risks if asked by parents and/or carers or inspectors. Risk assessments should identify aspects of the environment that need to be checked on a regular basis, when and by whom those aspects will be checked, and how the risk will be removed or minimised.
3.64 Children must be kept safe while on outings, and providers must obtain written parental permission for children to take part in outings. Providers must assess the risks or hazards which may arise for the children, and must identify the steps to be taken to remove, minimise and manage those risks and hazards. The assessment must include consideration of adult to child ratios. The risk assessment does not necessarily need to be in writing; this is for providers to judge.
3.65 Vehicles in which children are being transported, and the driver of those vehicles, must be adequately insured.

There was a risk assessment fact sheet from Ofsted but I noticed it has disappeared from the Ofsted website recently. It's still on a few LA sites but I imagine it's being updated.
