During the year all classes will have a number of organised visits. We use these trips to extend and enliven the curriculum. Typically, a class might visit a gallery, museum, theatre, a farm or a park. The Class Teacher will write to you about each trip to ask your permission and let you know about the financial contribution and any special arrangements. Permission slips are required for these trips. However, if it is a local trip not involving public transport, each parent has signed a consent form on admission to the school.
We try to keep the cost of all visits as low as possible and we normally ask you to make a voluntary contribution. Children who do not pay are not excluded but trips may be cancelled if there are insufficient funds available.
Each year we aim to take Year 6 children away for a week during the Autumn term to Kingswood Outdoor centre in Ashford, Kent. This visit focuses of teamwork, resilience and communication and develops the independence of the child as this maybe the first time they hae spent time away from their parents. There are lots of fun activities including abseilling, zipwire and archery. Have a look at the photos for our latest visit in September last year below:
Accommodation and arrangements are planned in advance. Orientation meetings are planned throughout the year for Y6 parents and children and there is financial support is available for those who claim benefits.
