The Booking Form—once signed and returned is a confirmed booking.

Cancellations—can only be accepted 2 weeks prior to visit. Later than this means we have to pay a cancellation fee to the instructor/s

Health and Safety—A safety talk is given to all group member upon arrival. We have a risk assessment which can be made available to schools for the visit and the activities used.  The school should ensure they include on the visit an appropriate person as medical first aid officer (who is aware of any health issues of the participants) on the visit.

Insurance— We hold Public Liability insurance for all visitors to Naturezones at all times.

Discipline—Teachers and adult supervisors remain responsible for discipline at all times and should ensure that their pupils are adequately supervised and agree to act as Loco Parents’ at all times.

Toilets and hand washing—We have a toilet block by the barn. Hand washing facilities are available which all children MUST use before eating food.

Lunch—can be eaten in the Pavilion on wet days and in the meadows during sunny days.

Clothing—Please ensure children are appropriately dressed. Boots and wet weather cloths or sun hats and sun cream on sunny days.

Payment—for some visits must be received in full on booking.

Our obligation to the booking—Naturezones shall not be liable for any delay in performing or failing to perform any obligation or alterations and cancellations due to any cause beyond its control.

Changes to programme—material changes may be necessary due to prevailing weather conditions, operational conditions and other matters beyond the control of Naturezones. We will contact the client as soon as possible to inform of these changes.

Seasonal alterations—Some of the activities may benefit from seasonal alterations and these changes may be incorporated into the programme at the last minute.

Arrival—Coaches and school busses must drop children off at the bus stop on the Blackwater road where you will be met and walked to Naturezones along the cycle path. There are no parking facilities for coaches and we recommend that buses drop off the children and if necessary park in the car-park on Coppins Bridge roundabout. We are able to accommodate mini buses and up to 10 cars including disabled vehicles.

Why not catch the bus. The No 3 travels past Naturezones.

Drop off/Pickup option. We are happy for you to organise parents dropping off and collecting children from Naturezones at the beginning and end of the session. This has worked very well in the past.

Resources—All resources are provided by Naturezones
