Schools are not required to obtain consent from parents for pupils to participate in off-site activities that take place during school hours and which are a normal part of a child’s education, such as local studies and visits to a museum or library etc.
Where consent is required (for example in early years settings or for visits outside normal school hours) a one-off blanket consent form may be considered.
The gaining of parental consent and the gathering of necessary information about visit participants has often been done at the same time using the same mechanism. This does not need to be the case. This document covers consent: when it is needed and how to evidence it has been given. For guidance on gaining and using participant information see the document ‘Participant information’ in section 4 of this guidance.
