Important preparation information


To ensure that you and your group make the most of your day on the farm, please read this carefully and communicate any relevant information to staff, helpers, parents and children. 

Please also refer to the booking terms and conditions on the booking form.


Group Responsibility including Discipline & Supervision

Visiting parents/carers are responsible for the supervision, safe behaviour and wellbeing of their group members, ensuring all health and safety procedures are adhered to as advised by Magdalen staff during the introductory talks and risk assessments.  Magdalen is a working farm therefore all students must be accompanied at all times.  Magdalen reserves the right to terminate activities if there is inadequate supervision or poor discipline.



Lunch is included and we offer jacket potatoes with a choice of fillings with homemade cake.  We recommend a refillable drinks bottle to avoid dehydration.  Light refreshments and snacks are included throughout the day.  


Regardless of the weather - we don’t stop unless we absolutely have to, so please advise everyone to wear adequate OLD clothing for wet/warm/cold weather – plenty of layers are best.  This includes a woolly hat, wellies, thick socks, waterproof jacket, waterproof trousers, sun cream, and a sunhat according to the weather conditions.  A spare set of clothing is advisable.


Risk Assessments

Risk assessments for all activities are available upon request.  If at any time visiting staff are unhappy about an activity, it is essential they make their concerns known to your Magdalen leader at the earliest opportunity.   


Farmland, Water, Bio-security and Animals

Adults should ensure that children follow the advice given in the introductory talk from Magdalen leader, as well as guidance from risk assessments.  It is the responsibility of visiting staff to ensure the group wash and dry their hands thoroughly before and after eating, after any contact with animals, and after every activity. 


First Aiders and First Aid Kits

Magdalen leaders carry first aid kits when out on the farm away from the centre
