Safe School Trips

A look at the latest efforts to encourage more school trips Sheena McDonald and Mike Baker discuss the latest efforts to encourage more teachers to feel confident about taking students on school trips, highlighting the best advice to ensure that school trips go smoothly. We talk to Phil Revell, a member of the advisory group Learning Outside the Classroom, who argues that there is too much emphasis on what can go wrong on school trips, rather than on the positive educational experience that they provide. NUT lawyer Graham Clayton discusses the legal position of teachers taking school trips, and Shadow Schools Minister Nick Gibb calls for a change in the law to make it harder to litigate against teachers taking school trips.
