5.3a Writing policies to reduce bureaucracy for routine off-site activities and visits

You can avoid unnecessary bureaucracy and paperwork associated with outdoor learning, off-site visits and learning outside the classroom, by ensuring that the planned activities are covered by the establishment’s generic policy and standard operating procedures. This applies to visits and activities that are:
• Straightforward
• Suitable for being covered by a “blanket consent”, or where parental consent is not required
• Covered by a generic risk-benefit assessment.

You can find further guidance in document 1b ‘Foundations’.
