We provide one, generic, risk assessment for all the programmes we run in East London. The main risks in an urban area are common to most of our programmes – crossing roads, travelling by train, encounters with the public. It is important that you are familiar with the risk assessment before you come.
If students are using mobile phones, it might be a good idea to share numbers, so teachers and students are within contact through the day.
Perhaps, the single most important thing before you arrive is to remind students to come wearing appropriate clothing for fieldwork, allowing for the time of year. We do not insist on school uniform, though we do find it helps us to keep sight of students and to identify them as school students when meeting members of the public.
