May fall into pond
7 The reason why I give this occurrence a 7 is because it is not major but it is not unlikely for a child to fall into the pond.
4 The reason why I have chosen this number for the occurrence is because it is unlikely for a teacher to dismiss a child without going with them. This may lead to them falling into the pond and causing a serious accident. “Risk is the chance, high or low, that someone will be harmed by a hazard” (Stretch and Whitehouse, 2010, p88)
Not acceptable because the child should not be left alone and should be maintained at all times to prevent this. To prevent this from happening all staff should prevent it all staff should watch all children and have the correct amount of staff depending on the children. The reason why it is not at its highest risk is because all teachers who are taking the children to the park would be aware of the pond and tell the children not to enter the pond or walk around the pond for safety reasons. No children should be around the pond to prevent this from happening. It is more likely to happen because some children may wonder off and may fall into the pond and an accident. “The physical environment includes everything that is around you – objects, people, pets the building, the air and the temperature” (Stretch and Whitehouse, 2010, p89) All staff and teachers must be aware of the environment that they are taking the children in and what’s around them as well as the children to prevent any hazards.
