Risk Assessment

Holts Tours is an Assured Member of the School Travel Forum (STF), which means that in booking with us, you can be secure in the knowledge that we:

  • Understand and facilitate the needs of educational travel.
  • Have effective Safety Management Systems in place, specifically focused on travelling with young students.
  • Offer fair terms and conditions and the best financial security.

To ensure our health and safety standards are maintained, our systems and procedures are fully audited annually by independent experts.

STF membership is the benchmark for good school tour providers – consequently, it is an Awarding Body for the prestigious Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

The Outdoor Education Advisors Panel (OEAP) endorses the LotC Quality Badge and requests Local Authorities to recommend the use of Badged Providers, and for them to require the minimum of additional paperwork where Quality Badge accreditation is in place.

This means that you can book your trip with confidence, meet your due diligence and reduce the amount of external provider paperwork necessary.

Details of the School Travel Forum Code of Practice are available from Holts Tours. Alternatively, visit the School Travel Forum website
