Case 4 - Local authority withdraws facility for staff to bring families on school trips


A local authority has withdrawn the facility for teachers and school staff to bring their spouses and children on organised school trips.

Panel decision

There are no regulations in place which ban schools from allowing spouses and children to join teachers and school staff on school trips. This is a local decision taken based on an overly cautious interpretation of guidance on health and safety and possibly safeguarding.
