Educational Visits

School visits are organised to enhance ongoing topics or themes which the children are studying. With the increasing costs of admission fees to attractions and coach fares, staff endeavour to base as many visits as possible within the local area. This will help the children to understand their ‘sense of place’, within the community. They will also explore the reasons why historically and geographically local towns and villages have developed through the years. It is not our intention to have less visits, but to make them more affordable to all.

We will still be having paid trips in which we hope everyone will make a voluntary contribution. If everyone does not contribute then there is a likelihood the trip will not be able to go ahead.

Parental help: We always welcome parents to come and help with trips. If you feel you have the time to help with a trip, please could you try and let us have your name in advance.

Behaviour on trips: As part of the behaviour agreement, we would expect children’s behaviour to be of the highest standard. If we find a child cannot behave correctly in school, we may need to discuss with parents, our concerns before taking them on any visit, for their own health and safety and also that of others.
