School trips provide an invaluable learning experience for children, giving them a better understanding of their subjects, whilst boosting their self confidence. However there is pressure on schools to undertake risk assessments which can cause barriers to providing these educational trips. Anyone involved in the planning of a school trip must be 100% sure that they have done all they can to create a safe environment for their pupils.
According to The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) it is estimated that 7 to 10 million days are used each year for school trips across the UK. So, not surprisingly the management of pupils on school trips can cause organisers a headache. Imagine the relief and the time saved if you didn’t have to carry out headcounts, yet still be able to account for every pupil during the school trip. Also what if you could easily identify pupils that have special needs or require medication.
Bar Code Data, one of the country’s premier bar code companies, established over 20 years ago, worked with industry experts to design a simple solution to the management of pupils, known as PupilTrak. This dynamic system for printing wristbands guarantees that all pupils can be accounted for by simply scanning the wristband using a PDA. Also pupils’ have the reassurance that the teachers contact details are at their wrist throughout the trip.
