Forest School is child led and this focus continues over into our policies and procedures to safeguard and promote the welfare of children attending Forever Green sessions.
Emma and Donna both hold enhanced DBS Clearance (criminal records checks). Any other support staff employed by Forever Green are thoroughly vetted, with DBS checks and references taken.
We regularly review our policies, undertake safeguarding training and awareness and follow guidance from the local safeguarding board. If you would like to find out more about safeguarding in our area you can visit the Hillingdon HLSCB here: http://hillingdonlscb.org.uk
Our policies are available upon request, please email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Forever Green hold employers and public liability insurance to £10,000,000. Copies of our insurance certificate are available upon request.
Planning and preparation are essential to minimise risk. We conduct thorough risk assessments of every forest school site we work with and every activity that has potential risk.
Donna and Emma are trained first aiders and both hold current ITC Outdoor First Aid Certificates. Comprehensive first aid kits are always carried during Forest School sessions.
