Visits play an essential role in our curriculum and support our vision that children will be challenged and achieve high standards through an exciting and enriched curriculum. Visits are planned within the locality and further afield to places of interest or relevance to curriculum areas being studied.
We take Risk Assessments very seriously and will always ensure that the risk of taking a group of pupils off-site is correctly mitigated through a range of measures, including a high adult-pupil ratio and the use of trusted coach companies. Each individual trip is thoroughly investigated for its suitability for hosting school groups and an individual risk assessment completed. Parents can request to see these at any time prior to a trip taking place.
Parents will be notified of all visits in writing and will be asked to give their consent for anything other than a local area walk. From time to time we may appeal for parental support with local area trips and visits. Please look out for that and let us know if you are available!
All Educational Visits are now booked via Arbor. Parents are able to provide consent and medical/dietry information at the point of payment. In these instances, there is no need to return the consent forms to school. If you do not have online access, please visit the school office and they would be happy to complete these on your behalf.
The school office organise a large variety of trips throughout each half-term. It is essential that all consents and payments are provided by the date provided to ensure your child can attend. The school office must confirm numbers with venues but also arrange lunches with the kitchen.
