Educational trips and visits

We support teachers, youth workers and others with organising school trips and visits by:

  • Making sure trips comply with the council’s duty of care for the health and safety of children and young people
  • Making sure that policy and procedures are followed
  • Providing advice, information and other support.

Notification forms

Forms and other documents that you will need for organising a trip can be downloaded from our EVOLVE system (external link).

To access Evolve, please purchase the SLA via the services for schools portal (external link) and select sign up. If you have not purchased the SLA by 1st November 2019, you will not be able to access the Evolve system.

Guidance and information

Our educational trips and visits policy contains helpful guidance and information, including appropriate web links to help manage the planning process for school trips and visits.

Additional supporting information can be found at the National Guidance website (external link).

The Department for Education has produced a document for activities including school trips, Health and safety: advice for schools.
