Risk assessment template
Under the requirements of the EYFS, you must be able to demonstrate how you are managing the risks in your setting. While there is no specific requirement to have a written risk assessment, it can be a useful exercise, helping you to identify what risks might be present, and to be able to demonstrate to colleagues, parents or inspectors how you are managing them.
Our downloadable risk assessment template will help you think about your setting and what risks might be present. It includes space for you to describe what measures you're putting in place to reduce those risks.
The template is in a Word document so that you can adapt it to your setting's specific needs.
