Excursion Risk Assessment


Our Centre acknowledges the value of relevant excursions and incursions in allowing children to gain a greater insight of the society in which they live, and learn from these experiences. Our Centre will actively seek to minimise any risks associated with excursions and incursions.. A risk assessment will be conducted prior to any excursion or incursion. The risk assessment will identify and assess risks that the excursion /incursion may pose to the safety and/or health of any child being taken on the excursion/incursion. The assessment will specify how the identified risks will be managed and minimized.
