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.
Parent volunteers are encouraged on trips but we may be restricted by places on coaches or offered by the venue. We will advise you of this information and appeal for volunteers where possible on a trip by trip basis. Local walks e.g. to Church are always welcoming of parent volunteers and we very much enjoy having you along!
