Health and Safety
The well-being of children who visit Stubbington Study Centre is of paramount importance. We ensure both a quality and a safe experience.
Each of the dorms are locked from the outside during the night, doors will still open from the inside in the case of a fire. Access will only be by a security code given to visiting teachers.
We maintain the highest standards of fire safety. All areas of the centre are covered by fire alarms. We also have a comprehensive fire risk assessment. All visitors complete a fire drill on their first day.
All our activities have been comprehensively risk assessed. We minimise all identified risks and yet allow children the freedom to safely explore. All activities are planned by experienced and trained staff. Visiting leaders who lead activities are fully briefed and made aware of all Health and Safety issues.
All staff at the centre are CRB checked and our policy is updated regularly. Schools are responsible for ensuring their staff or helpers are CRB checked.
We have two Welfare Assistants to help with administering first aid and with children who feel ill. A number of other staff are also first aid trained. For off-site visits to the beach, staff carry smaller first aid kits.
At night teachers have access to an internal phone and a list of emergency contact numbers for Centre staff.
