From time to time children will be taken to places of interest in connection with the work they are doing in class. As adults, it is often activities such as these that we remember about our own school days. Cost is kept to a minimum and you will be notified in good time of any proposed visit. Short walks or local visits may also be undertaken during the day which incur no expense. Longer residential visits are organised for children in Year 6 which involve being away from home for a period of up to a week. Parents are invited to meetings at the school so that details can be provided and questions answered.
We consider that educational visits are an essential component of the curriculum and ask for parents' support in this matter. Legislation has meant that schools are unable to insist that parents pay for trips etc that take place in school time. If a parent has financial difficulties then the school may be able to help and the Headteacher or office staff should be approached directly. No child will be excluded from a trip because of financial difficulties although a trip may not be viable if insufficient donations are received.
