IMPORTANT: School trips to France & Belgium - Latest Update from Health and Safety team

24 Nov 2015

Following developments in Belgium and France in the aftermath of the recent Paris attacks, the Health and Safety team have released further guidance relating to school trips in these countries.

VISITS TO FRANCE AND BELGIUM

Because the situation can change at any time, schools should follow the below general guidance:

SCHEDULED VISITS

• Follow Foreign & Commonwealth Office advice (this can be accessed here)
• Keep an eye on the news and re-evaluate if necessary
• Check your insurance position
• Be especially vigilant

FUTURE VISITS:

It is OK to continue planning future visits. In addition to the above you should:
• if possible avoid making financial commitments
• check whether you would be able to postpone any visits if necessary

Please remember that guidance on Educational Visits can be found on the Health and Safety section of the Schools Website while Clive Atkins, our Outdoor Education Adviser, can be contacted at clive.atkins@btopenworld.com if you have questions regarding any aspect of educational visits or activities.
