Requirements: Outings
Explanation: Children must be kept safe on outings and staff must make sure they have parental permission to take children on outings. Staff must make sure they have carried out a risk assessment and checked out ways to overcome any issues or hazards which could occur for the children. Transport the children will be using, and the driver should be adequately insured. In placement and my role:

Making sure that all parents and carers are aware of where the child is going and what they will be doing on the outing, also making sure the parents and carers have given the child full permission to go out on the outing. If the children need any medical needs like epi-pens, asthma pumps or medication, they will need to make sure that there is someone qualified to assist the children with any medical needs. This is achieved by making sure they have enough members of staff at all times throughout the outing like for when they may need to split up or if a child becomes injured that there will be enough members for two to go with the child.
