This element of the audit looks at aspects connected with the actual visit.

This should be seen as an opportunity to educate and reinforce best practice. It may highlight the advantage of uniform or uniforms to distinguish different responsibilities for staff. Staff operate best if a sense of ownership is fostered.

Each member of staff should be encouraged, indeed it ought to be the rule, to look for 3 opportunities a day in which to “go that extra mile” or make a visitor’s experience “magic”. It might be taking time to ask questions, offer help without being asked or to offer a small free gift to a child.
