Medical forms and consent

It is the group leader's responsibility to ensure they have obtained fully informed (parental for under 18s) consent for group members to attend Hampshire Outdoor Centres before arrival. Furthermore, parents/guardians and visiting staff accept that, by their nature, adventure activities may involve some level of risk which cannot be fully eliminated.

Failure to disclose relevant information may result in groups or individuals not being permitted to undertake activities at Hampshire Outdoor Centres.

It is important that group leaders obtain information from parents or guardians for under 18s, relating to:

  • Medical conditions
  • Additional needs
  • Swimming ability (for programmes with water content)
  • Dietary requirements

Visiting group leaders must disclose this information prior to the visit using the HOC Group and Staff List Form.

Medical and consent information can be collected using the school's own forms or our form templates:

The Outdoor Education Advisers’ Panel (OEAP) supports local authorities, schools and academy groups in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and provides advice on good practice in off-site visits, outdoor learning and learning outside the classroom. Their guidance may be useful when planning your visit to Hampshire Outdoor Centres.
