Risk assessments

1. All visiting groups should download our Site Risk Assessment Guidance Document

This document will help you assess some of the risks at the Discovery Centre. The specific hazards, controls and residual risk levels will depend on your learners.

All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times whilst at the Discovery Centre.


If you have booked any interactive workshops as part of your visit, please also download the following:

2. General risk assessment for all workshops
3. The additional, specific risk assessments for your workshops, which can be found below:

Our A-level physics workshops (Radio Telescopes and Pulsars) do not contain practical elements, and as such are covered by the general risk assessment for all workshops.

Please remember trip organisers can come for a free planning visit, to assess the risks at the Discovery Centre before your trip. Simply show proof of employment or booking (such as your staff card, a school letterhead, or a printed confirmation email) at reception upon arrival.
