The Hedgehog Club Code of Conduct

At Hedgehog Club we have a code of conduct which covers some really important rules we need to follow to keep ourselves and our environment safe.

THE GOLDEN RULES

 

  1.      Look after yourself

  2.      Look after one another

  3.      Look after our forest and planet

 

RESPECT FOR NATURE

  • At Hedgehog Club we are learning about our environment and what impact we have upon it. While we are at Hedgehog Club we must try not to pick too many living plants.

LEAVE NO TRACE

  • At the end of the session please make sure we take all our rubbish with us in order to minimise the impact we are having on the environment.

WORKING WITH TOOLS

  • At times we may use some tools at Hedgehog Club – knives, saws or loppers. All these activities have been risk assessed and will be supervised by myself 1:1.

FIRE

  • When we have a fire it will be within the fire circle and this must never be entered by children. Do not run around or near the fire when it is lit. This activity will have been risk assessed and all appropriate health and safety equipment will be used.

  • When lighting a fire the Forest School leader will take control of the operation.

  • A lit fire will not be left unattended at any point.

  • Any fire will always be safely extinguished by the Forest School Leader.

  • No walking through the fire circle.

PICKING UP AND PLAYING WITH STICKS

  • Children can carry sticks but make sure they think about how close they are to other children. Long sticks should be transported like a wizard’s staff to keep them from unintentionally (or otherwise!) poking other children.

  • Longer sticks can be dragged or carried with a child at both ends.

  • Sticks must not be thrown, nor should children be allowed to pull them from living trees

 

All risk assessments for the woodland and Hedgehog Club activities on this site are available on request.
