Teachers’ Resources & Risk Assessment

Schools will need to use the following resources for ideas for activities for their pupils if booked in as a self-guided group and also during your time spent on site when you are not in a teaching session.

Orienteering maps are available on request (see the ‘Investigating Map Skills’ resource under Geography below).

All resources below are downloadable as PDF Files.

Health & Safety

The generic education risk assessment is available below, however we recommend that all visiting schools and other parties complete their own risk assessments relevant to their visiting group, as this will identify any further measures required specific to the needs of the visiting group, such as supervision ratios. Please be advised that you should bring a trained first aider with you on the day of your visit and the Gardens’ accident book must be completed if you have an incident on site by a group leader, located at the main reception desk.
