Health And Safety

The health and safety of children and adults who attend farm visits is a priority for The Country Trust.

Our Farm Coordinators will assist teachers and other school staff to prepare for the visit, to conduct risk assessments, arrange and (if possible attend) a pre visit, provide advice, notes and guidelines, as well as web links about government advice.

There will be a member of The Country Trust, or one of our trained volunteers, present at every visit, with the exception of farms where the hosts have been trained to deliver visits.

For schools who fit our criteria and wish to organise a farm visit, please contact Kay Whitfield or email us at [email protected]
