OUTLINE OF PROVISION
While supporting, enriching and extending the curriculum, it’s important that offsite visits are carried out safely and in accordance with Local Authority and National guidelines. Brighton & Hove's Outdoor Education Service provides advice, guidance and approval on all off-site and adventurous activities, together with Educational Visit Coordinator and visit leader training, curriculum support, and ideas to help you get the most out of your offsite activity programme. It's run by the Outdoor Education Adviser.
As from the beginning of March 2018, the Service now provides additional PE support at no extra cost to subscribers. This support includes a copy of the ninth edition the Association of PE’s 'Safe Practice in Physical Education and Sport’, as well as extended technical support and regular Health & Safety and AfPE updates. Also in development is the creation of practical PE coordinator training and local PE guidance around key areas.
