Teachers’ Free Resources & Risk Assessments

Educational groups can use the following free resources for activity ideas for their pupils if booked in as a self-guided group or during the time spent on site when you are not in a teaching session.

Orienteering maps are also available on request (via the booking form).

Health & Safety

The generic education risk assessment is available below. However, we recommend that all visiting groups complete their own risk assessments, 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 (located at Reception) must be completed by the group leader if you have an incident on site.
