Ensuring that all the children who attend Urban Outdoors projects are always safe and well cared for by qualified staff attentive to their needs even in unlikely or emergency situations is very important to us. We have developed the following policies to ensure that both Staff and Parents know what what our procedures are. All our policies are covered in our in-house training with staff and are dynamically reviewed and updated throughout the year. Please click on the links below to read and download the policies.

Risk Assessments

Working with children in the outdoors safely involves a deep awareness of potential risks, as well as a strict process for all activities. We carry out regular generic risk assessments as well as a dynamic risk assessment at the beginning of each day and each activity. Our latest generic risk assessment is below.
