Top Tips For Planning Educational School Trips.
Total Articles: 31
What you want are some innovative ideas and a guaranteed and easy way of not just organising your outings but also of checking out venues in advance to be sure they measure up to expectations and being comfortable with all safety aspects of any trips.
A preliminary scan of the papers and a word with your colleagues has come up with little more than an expensive and stressful trip to central London, a visit to the local farm or the same venue that the school has been visiting for years. Although the good news is that there are lots of websites to choose from online, how to you choose the right one to suit your school's particular needs?
The first thing is to do before choosing any trip organiser is to perform some basic and fundamental checks, which include checking whether the organisation has any accreditations or industry memberships or has met any quality standards as well as checking how long they've been operating for.
Another important consideration at this stage is what systems a particular operator has in place for managing incidents, keeping pupils safe and reassuring parents and this should include risk assessment and insurance details. There are some really great initiatives available as far as safety is concerned including wrist bands, tabards and parent phone hot lines all which should be transparent and obvious on any website.
Once you've established an organisation is credible you need to decide what sort of package suits your school. You should be able to choose from a variety of options which will range from simply choosing an accredited venue from a site and organising the trip yourself to buying an annual membership from an organisation which will then take on and organise every aspect of all school trips for you. Do look out when choosing for whether you are offered discounts and free teacher places.
Any good school trip organiser will have a diverse selection of venues in your region from activity and adventure trips, to more educational school trips such as museums, environmental centres and visual art trips but another key feature to look out for is whether there is a choice of bespoke and tailor made packages to fit your school's particular needs and budget or whether they offer “off the shelf" style packages and trips.
A final point to bear in mind is the fact that with some organisations, you can sign up to their social media platforms and get lots of up to date ideas of potential venues and industry news.
With so many experienced operators offering such an impressive selection of school trips these days, there really is no need to go over budget, spend days driving round visiting venues and checking suitability or getting the usual moans from parents about affordability or whether a venue was safe or suitable. Choose the right operator for your needs and rest easy that one aspect of your annual responsibilities as been safely taken care of.
