Outdoor Education and Offsite Visits Policy
Educational visits, off-site activities and outdoor education during Coronavirus:
Following further changes to Govt guidance, this advice has been updated w.e.f. 13.11.20
During the second lockdown schools are advised to note the additional guidance in relation to sporting activities
In line with DfE guidance on the full opening of schools, schools can continue to take part in educational visits (day visits only).
In line with DfE guidance for schools during the current second lockdown there are additional restrictions:
• Schools should continue to offer before and after-school activities or clubs for their pupils if by doing so they help parents keep working, seek work, or to attend education or training. Most of these clubs or activities already fulfil this 'wraparound care' role and so can continue during the new national measures introduced in England on 5 November.
• Training for Ten Tors and Duke of Edinburgh activities should stop, unless schools can explicitly evidence that these activities are part of the documented school curriculum and to provide child care for working parents
• Volunteers (parent helpers) should not travel to support school activities if they are extra-curricular
Schools that undertake allowable off-site activities must:
• Consider the risks/benefits of such activities and ensure they are suitably risk managed
• Complete an appropriate Standard Operating Procedures form, and reference the school Covid Risk Assessment
• Record all off-site and adventurous activities on Evolve
• Gain Head Teachers approval
• Gain LA endorsement where deemed ‘adventurous’ (as per the LA policy)
• Ensure all staff, supporting adults and children are aware of their responsibilities as per the school Covid Risk Assessment
• Travel for off-site activities should be as short as possible (time/distance) to meet the needs of children and aims of the activity
