Risk Assessing your Space Camp is the most important part of your preparations. You will need to follow the policies of your school for safeguarding and health and safety and ensure that all children participating in your Space Camp are kept safe. This will include planning for:
The appropriate number of adults for supervision,
Ensuring that there is a first aider present,
Ensuring the appropriate CRB checks have been made for all adults
Informing the local Police and Fire Service of your intentions
Premises such as village halls, schools and museums which were not designed as sleeping accommodation are increasingly being used to hold sleepovers. During the day people using these premises will be awake and aware of their surroundings, if you are planning a sleepover you must ensure that suitable fire safety measures are in place so that people who may be asleep are alerted to and can escape safely in the event of a fire.
A risk assessment for a Space Camp is particular to your setting so it would be inappropriate for us to provide one however we have a number of documents to assist you in risk assessing your setting which are available below.
