There should be a collaborative approach within establishments to develop Visit Plans for the range of venues likely to be used on a regular basis.
Heads of Establishment should work with staff to develop an agreed approach to travelling on foot, to crossing roads or in the use of transport in their locality. Models of effective practice should also be developed and agreed for responding to local conditions and events. Approaches to risk education for children and young people should also be developed.
These plans should be reviewed regularly and adapted if required. They should be considered as working documents that are influenced by any incidents or lessons that have been learned. Sample Visit Plans can be found within the Toolkits section of the website.
