Guidance on Staffing Ratios

 

We are regularly by churches asking us about staffing ratios for children’s work.

We use the guidance that provided by the NSPCC 

  • 0-2 years – 1 adult to 3 children

  • 2-3 years – 1 adult to 4 children

  • 4-8 years – 1 adult to 6 children

  • 9-12 years – 1 adult to 8 children

  • 13-18 years – 1 adult to 10 children

There are different ratios for the Early Years Foundation Stage but these are not required for church activities unless you are running an OFSTED registered childcare setting such as a pre school or nursery
