Burleigh Travel is an Assured Member of the School Travel Forum (STF).
A very important factor when deciding who to travel with is the health and safety systems that are in place when travelling with young people. The School Travel Forum is the benchmark for these practices and as an assured member you can be secure in the knowledge that we meet the required standards and that you can book your trip with confidence and reduce the amount of external paperwork required by yourself.
If you plan to book with a company that is not a member, you would lose this security and checks would need to be completed to assess the health and safety procedures they have in place to protect your pupils or young people.
The STF was established to help schools and students travel with confidence, so you know that when you book a sports tour with Burleigh Travel you can be secure in the knowledge that we:
- Understand and facilitate the needs of educational travel.
- Have effective Safety Management Systems in place, specifically focused on travelling with young students.
- Offer fair terms and condition and the best financial security.
The STF is much more than a simple membership organisation, all Assured Members of the STF are required to adhere to a rigorous Code of Practice and Safety Management Standards and be audited each year by Argent Health & Safety, the UK’s leading Health and Safety Consultancy specialising in Travel, to ensure continuing compliance.
This means that you can book your trip with confidence, meet your due diligence and reduce the amount of External Provider paperwork necessary.
STF membership is the benchmark for good school tour providers; consequently it is an Awarding Body for the prestigious Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge that commends and acknowledges the benefits of activities away from the classroom for young peoples personal development and we are very pleased that our sports tours have been awarded this prestigious badge.
