An annual risk assessment is carried out on behalf of schools by E2W Education to Work Partnership and they have ruled out a list of 'no go' activities within The Deep for all students aged 18 or under including working with animals behind the scenes. We will require a completed E2W form for each student placement. We regret that individual risk assessments by individual schools and colleges is not allowed.
