Please remember that:


  • Schools will remain responsible for children when visiting the zoo in organised school trips and are encouraged to undertake their own risk assessment.
  • It is the responsibility of teachers and group leaders to supervise the children at all times.


This information is also given in the guidelines on the booking form that all visiting groups must sign to say they agree to comply with.
