The children at Cockenzie Nursery are encourage to risk assess areas with support from staff. They decide what the risks may be, how they can be avoided and create a risk assessment document.
The risk assessments give the children ownership and should be displayed in the specified area of nursery. Practitioners refer to the rules during play and very quickly the children will begin to use them with their peers and encourage them to stay safe.
Following a risk assessment to keep ourselves safe is easier than following rules!
