Welcome to the school visits page where you will find information about visits to the school and external visits that the children are involved in.
We take the children's health and safety very seriously. From September 2018 all visits have to be entered onto the Evolve site which is a programme that will validate the safety of providers.
Please bare in mind that for most curriculum visits we ask for a voluntary contribution. If we do not receive sufficient contributions to cover the cost of a particular trip we may have to cancel it. If parents are in financial difficulty they are asked to contact the Headteacher so that suitable arrangements can be made. Families in receipt of universal credit, who therefore receive free school meals, can use some of their allocated money to pay for a trip. No child will miss out on a visit through an inability to pay.
Academic Year 2020/21
Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions, we have not been on any school trips since February 2020 and have not, as yet, planned any for 2021. This will be addressed as soon as restrictions are lifted. Some classes have, however, been on walks in the local area and more outdoor learning has taken place.
