Educational Visits

To enhance the learning experiences of our pupils’ educational visits are organised throughout the year. When these occur, parents are asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost, and consent forms will need to be completed and returned to the school in plenty of time for the visit.

We wish to make it clear that no pupils will be denied participation in the visit on the grounds that no contribution has been made on his/her behalf. However, if sufficient contributions are not received then the visit may have to be cancelled.

Depending on the length of visit children may need a packed lunch and suitable clothing. Detailed arrangements of school visits are always forwarded to parents well in advance of the visit.

  • make no charge for education provided during school hours including books and apparatus with the following exceptions –
