Staff & Safety
Providing an excellent experience in a safe environment is extremely important to us, and we know how important it is to you.
All our staff are trained in Outdoor First Aid and all staff and volunteers are DBS checked. Our small class sizes ensure that there is always a high staff-pupil ratio.
Before each visit rigorous risk assessments are carried out and all equipment used in sessions are well maintained.
Safeguarding and Child Protection
We take child protection and safeguarding very seriously. Our Child Protection and Safeguarding Statement sets out how we implement child protection and safeguarding across the Wildlife Trust and who to contact if you have questions or concerns.
