Running a Child Safe risk assessment is an important part of ensuring the safety of children in any environment. It is a process of identifying, assessing and managing the risks associated with any activity that involves children. This process helps to ensure that the environment is safe and that any potential risks are minimised.

The first step in running a Child Safe risk assessment is to identify any potential risks. This includes identifying any potential hazards, such as leadership, systems, staff training & experience and engagement that could affect the safety of children in the environment. Once any potential risks have been identified, they should be assessed and managed accordingly. 

It is important to regularly review and update the Child Safe risk assessment to ensure that the environment remains safe. This could include monitoring the environment for any changes, such as new staff or changes in the activities taking place, and ensuring that any new risks are identified and managed. Regular reviews should also be conducted to ensure that any existing risks are being managed effectively.
