7i Group Safety at Water Margins
This document replaces the 2001 DfES/CCPR document Group Safety at Water Margins. Although the content of the original document remains current, many of its links are out of date.
The revised document covers activities that might take place near or in water – such as a walk along a river bank or seashore, collecting samples from ponds and streams, or paddling or walking in gentle, shallow water.
It does not cover swimming and other activities that require water safety or rescue qualifications and equipment or water-going craft. Leaders planning for young people to enter the water should also read document 7o Natural Water Bathing.
