How many adults do I need to supervise a group of children on a trip (including overnight stays)?
1 minute
  • 2 adults for every 8 children aged 10 and under
  • 2 adults for every 10 children aged 11 and over

Supervisors will require a DBS check. You may need to have a greater adult-to-child ratio dependant on the needs of the children or nature of the trip. The gender of the supervising adults should match the gender of the children if possible.
