Who is the School Travel Forum?
The School Travel Forum (STF) is a group of leading school tour operators who promote good practice and safety in school travel.
School Travel Forum membership is the benchmark for good school tour providers; consequently it is an Awarding Body for the prestigious Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge. All full members of the STF adhere to a rigorous Code of Practice and Safety Management Standards which meet the safety requirements of the DfE guidelines and are externally verified each year by suitably qualified independent Health and Safety professionals.
The School Travel Forum Code of Practice has been developed in consultation with all the major Teachers' Associations and Unions, including NAHT, SHA, ATL, NASUWT, NUT, PAT and by the Outdoor Education Advisors' Panel.
Rayburn Tours is a founding member of the School Travel Forum (STF) and our Commercial Manager currently sits on the Committee. This position enables us to aid the developments of the STF and voice the feedback we receive from our groups.
