Field Trips

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of updating and amending the field trip policy specifically for EYFS/Kindergarten.

I know from last year, having had some over protective parents on a trip, that issues were raised and ones that are easily addressed with a few new amendments to the policy

Do your school's policies cover specifically these areas:

1. Students on and off the bus - checking the bus after all students have disembarked.

2. Car parks - movement of students in and around

3. Walking pairs

Do you have a particularly good field trip policy dealing with the younger students that I can read?

The parents are easily(ish) placated, for the short term.

We don't have a separate EY visits policy. The whole school one doesn't make specific reference to any of the things you mention. However, when we plan a trip we have to make a set of risk assessment notes specific to that venue - usually based on a pre-visit. Also, just before we go we have to read and sign the school generic visits risk assessment which does include every single one of the things you mentioned. We also have to do a parent helper briefing where we talk them through the risk assessment and get them to sign to say they have read it.

As Froglet - policies don't cover this but risk assessments do. We also go through risk assessment with parents and ensure that the mantra 'count the children' is embedded, and it is done frequently.

We also make sure that parent helpers see us counting children and adults at frequent intervals!
