These are organised by the teaching staff. Usually they are arranged as part of the development of class work and therefore have a strong educational as well as social element.
Whilst out on a school visit the children receive a high level of supervision. All reasonable precautions are taken to ensure the children’s safety and to maintain their well-being.
In most instances charges are incurred by the school for transport, entry fees, insurance etc. It is the policy of the Governors to give parents the opportunity of making a voluntary contribution towards these costs. The support given in this way is very much appreciated as this greatly reduces the heavy financial burden placed on the school and ensures that we are able to continue providing the wider range of knowledge and experiences that school trips and visits can give.
