Throughout normal school years, educational visits are organised support curriculum work. Your child will visit the local environment and also go further afield on longer day visits which involves a journey either by coach or train. These visits are important as first hand experiences.
We also have a performance groups visiting school each year. This could be a theatre group or a puppeteer. These groups are partly funded by school. The Governors’ charging policy (to pay for these events) is to ask parents for a voluntary contribution towards the costs, but no child is excluded if parents do not pay.
However, if we do not receive enough voluntary contributions, some visits and/or events may have to be cancelled.
In Years 4 and 6 residential visits are organised. These involve overnight stays and are not compulsory but strongly encouraged. In previous years, Year 4 children have visited Whitby to support the Geography curriculum, and in Year 6, children visit outdoor and adventurous activity centres to support the PE curriculum.
