Risk assessments, Risk Benefit and Play (Online Live Webinar)

So what does risky play actually mean? Play England (2008) states that play means “providing opportunities for all children to encounter or create uncertainty, unpredictability, and potential hazards as part of their play. We do not mean putting children in danger of serious harm” . Children recognise that not everything around them can be made safe and that a balance is needed between risks and fun.

This webinar delivered by Birmingham Play Care Network will enable Playworkers to recognise risk benefit and how to use risk assessments to develop children’s play opportunities. The session will allow Playworkers to recognise the link between play observations, risk assessments and the play environment and explore the resources available to support risk benefit assessments.

ADDITIONAL DATE ADDED : Wednesday 28th July, 6.30pm - 8.30pm, book here :
