With the new academic year well underway, a few pointers for school Heads / Educational Visits Coordinators (EVCs) and Visit Leaders to note:
- Your School Visits Policy should be current and if using the EVOLVE system, a copy of this policy must be uploaded to evidence compliance for all maintained schools and should also be uploaded to facilitate monitoring for all non-maintained schools.
- The OEAP national guidance is a website for all schools to access advice and guidance on a huge range of queries relating to Educational Visits. Please use this resource to support your schools to meet national standards for H&S on Educational Visits. oeapng.info
- All schools should note the following guidance to ensure a suitable H&S system for managing school visits is in place: ‘Basic Essentials’ document oeapng.info/download/1046/
- Need to check out providers for educational visits? Another useful resources for all schools is the Kaddi.com website. Discover if they hold the LOtC Quality Badge and look at the reviews completed by visit leaders who have used the provider and have completed a ‘trip adviser’ type review.
