Educational visits form an important part of our curriculum as we firmly believe that children learn best when engaged in first-hand encounters. In between educational visits children can also take part in many learning experiences in our state of the art 4D learning room which uses odours, visual and interactive learning.
Visits are organised to comply with relevant guidelines and procedures. Some educational experiences cannot take place without the cost of such visits being funded by parents. Such contributions are voluntary, and parents will be informed of the cost to each child should a visit be planned.
Each visit/activity will only take place if sufficient voluntary contributions are received to enable us to fund it. The school does subside educations visits and every effort is made to keep the cost to a minimum. If the shortfall on voluntary contributions is so great that the visit/activity cannot proceed, all monies will be returned to parents. Parental permission is always sought before taking children from the school premises for educational visits.
We pride ourselves on being able to give children the opportunity to experience different adventures experiences and outings.
We're delighted that following a break from getting out and about due to Covid-19, trips out are very much back on the agenda. All our visits are listed in the table below. Click on the event to see a copy of the letter providing more information.
