When working with groups of children or young people it's important that there are enough adults to provide the appropriate level of supervision.
Staffing and supervision ratios can sometimes be difficult to judge. It’s important that you have enough staff and volunteers to ensure children are safe – and that these adults are suitable to undertake various tasks as needed.
It may not always be possible to adhere to recommended ratios. However, every effort should be made to achieve the best level of supervision of children at all times.
These ratios are recommended for activities that take place outside of school.
