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.   


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.  

Other groups may be skating in the same session as well as members of the public. Please be always respectful to other skaters.

Adults providing one-to-one support for a group member 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 children (6 adults must accompany children on the ice per group of 32)   

KS2 – 1 adult to every 8 children (4 adults must accompany children on the ice per group of 32)   

KS3/KS4 - 1 adult to every 10 students (3 adults must accompany students on the ice per group of 32)  

Post-16 – 1 adult per 16 students (2 adults must accompany students on the ice per group of 32)  

Unfortunately, there is no wiggle room on this. If you are unable to bring enough adults (18+) to skate with young people on the ice, we will not be able to accommodate your booking request.  

5. Have fun!   

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