The Scottish Government have recognised the need for young people to be regularly involved in outdoor activity and learning. This will involve establishments taking young people off-site.
Many of these off-site visits will be routine, and will become an accepted and expected part of the curriculum. Within this guidance, these types of visits have been termed ‘Routine and Expected Visits’ and establishments should ensure that the process for running them is simple.
Routine and Expected Visits will generally be to local venues, involve easily managed activities, happen on a regular basis and be completed within the normal session times.
A flowchart for planning and organisation of this category of visit can be found in the Tookits section of the website.
