Important information

Suitability of activities

All school and children’s clubs are welcome to take part in our educational visits. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss the suitability for children.

Supervision

You and your adult helpers are responsible for the control and discipline of the children at all times. Please note the information given in the Health & Safety section.

Immediate supervision (i.e. every child must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times), is required for all visits to Uncleby Farms and we recommend a ratio of at least 1:4 adults for children under 5 years, 1:6 for under 8 years and 1:8 for 8 to 16 year olds, with a minimum of one qualified teacher for every group or class. Loco parentis remains with the accompanying teachers / group leaders throughout the visit.

Please ensure that all teachers and adult helpers accompanying the party are properly briefed about their responsibilities and have all relevant information relating to the visit prior to arrival.
