Responsibilities for visiting nursery groups


Before a nursery visit can take place, you must confirm with the Museum the number of learners who will be in your group and the number of accompanying adults. While we expect you to conform to the learner-to-adult ratio requirements laid out by your governing body, we require a minimum of one adult to every four learners.


The Museum's learning team are DBS-checked and all members of staff receive safeguarding training as standard, including our lost child procedures. However, the safeguarding responsibility for nursery groups on our site remains with the teacher in charge of the visit to the Museum.


We ask that all teachers and accompanying adults bringing nursery groups to the Museum ensure that their learners behave appropriately at all times during their visit. The Museum is a public place and all groups are asked to show consideration towards our other visitors and to treat our collection and exhibits with care. 

Learners’ behaviour and conduct is the responsibility of nursery staff. In the event of inappropriate behaviour, the Museum reserves the right to take such action as is necessary for the safety and enjoyment of all concerned. This includes the right to refuse admission and/or to ask the group to leave.


If you are unable to attend your session, we require no less than one month’s notice. For cancellations with less than one month’s notice, we will endeavour to reschedule your session.

If the Museum needs to cancel your booking for any reason, we will endeavour to reschedule the session at the earliest opportunity.
