Some schools in slightly more rural settings are fortunate enough to be able to provide a school farm for their pupils. These are used to teach children about livestock and the farming process. Many of these schools will use their farm facilities during lessons, but will also run extracurricular farming activities and clubs.
These types of facilities can really inspire some kids to consider a career working with animals; if not on a farm, then perhaps as vet or something similar. School farms can be home to pigs, cows and sheep, and any other animals that might be found on a working farm.
By their very nature, most farm animals can be unpredictable. This could mean that if your child worked on the school farm, there could be a possibility of her being injured by livestock. If this were to happen as a result of the negligence of the school, there will be a chance that you might be able to take personal injury action on your child’s behalf with the aid of a top-notch 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitors in Littlestone.
