4. Safeguarding and Risk Assessments 

There are different things to consider when it comes to keeping your students safe during a visit to the ice rink.  

You will need to complete your own risk assessments for your visit and bring the recommended number of supervising adults. All skaters skate at their own risk.  

Supervision 

  • You are legally responsible for your group at all times this includes on the ice and in the skate exchange.
  • You are responsible for your group skating safely and that they are following any instructions given by our skate marshalls.
  • Please note our skate marshalls are not skating teachers. They are on the ice to assist skaters and ensure safe use on the ice.
  • If at any time the behaviour of your group is deemed unacceptable or inappropriate, staff at the rink will issue a warning and speak to the lead teacher. If the issue continues the skater will be asked to leave the ice. 
  • Adults providing one-to-one support for a student should be counted separately, and there should be an appropriate number of other adults who are responsible for the rest of the group. So please ensure that you have sufficient staff with your group throughout the visit: 
    • KS1 – 1 adult per every 5 students (6 adults must accompany students on the ice per class of 32)  
    • KS2 – 1 adult to every 8 children (4 adults must accompany students on the ice per class of 32)  
    • KS3/KS4 - 1 adult to every 10 students (3 adults must accompany students on the ice per class of 32) 
    • Post-16 – 1 adult per 16 students (2 adults must accompany students on the ice per class of 32) 
       
  • A free ticket will be offered to all adults required to be on the ice. Any additional adults who want to skate will be eligible for the 50% discount. 

5. Have fun!  

That is it, pretty easy right?  All that is left to do is enjoy your visit.
