The School’s Health and Safety Policy will ensure that all learners and adults can be safe in the Forest School environment.
The Forest School Leader will risk assess the site before use. This will include risks involving access the site, site contents and site boundaries, additionally the Forest School Leader will carry out a daily risk assessment to ensure that any uncontrollable changes (weather) can be addressed.
Where activities deemed to be adventurous, an activity risk assessment will also be carried out. Forest School staff should make themselves aware of the school’s Health and Safety Policy, particularly the arrangements and procedures for ensuring the health and safety of children working at Forest School, the tools used at Forest School and the risk assessments carried out for Forest School.
