Risk Assessment Guidelines

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard has produced guidelines for teachers bringing pupils on education visits. It is the responsibility of group leaders to complete a full risk assessment prior to visiting and these guidelines do not replace your own assessment being undertaken.

Please download the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard guidelines and the guidelines for the attraction(s) you are due to visit.

For security purposes we do not have the facility to store lunch boxes or bags so we advise that luggage is kept to a minimum and pupils have backpacks so their hands are free for climbing ladders aboard the ships. We also advise all visitors to wear sensible shoes and dress warmly in cold weather.
