Safety and Insurance

Safety management system

The safety of you and your group is of paramount importance to us. Our safety management system has been developed in accordance with School Travel Forum and LOtC guidelines for the health and safety of students on educational visits. A copy of our safety management system is available for each party leader on request.

Standards abroad

As a general rule, safety standards and legislation abroad will not be as in the UK. Outside the UK, local safety standards and legislation will apply.

Accommodation

All accommodation in our brochure has been chosen for its suitability to provide a safe and secure environment for students. All venues priced in this brochure have been inspected and approved by directors or senior managers of Wyvern Schooltours. We reject venues which do not meet our standards. We obtain written documentation from our centres that fire and safety standards are independently inspected and meet local requirements. We also carry out regular inspections of venues in line with our safety management system.
