Children learn best when presented with quality first-hand experiences. We try to incorporate as many Educational Visits into the curriculum as possible to help bring learning to life. All Educational Visits directly link to learning within lessons and are a statutory part of the school’s curriculum.

We welcome parental support on Educational Visits, although we do not place helpers directly with their own children. Alongside staff members, Parental helpers lead and supervise small groups of children, but not their own child. This role is essentially to support learning and to engage the children in conversation (which you will be briefed about beforehand). If that sounds like you, then please let us know at the time by completing and submitting the relevant ParentMail form and once we have a better idea of numbers we’ll get back to you.
In addition, all Yr 2 pupils attend compulsory swimming lessons during the summer term. This is part of children’s statutory PE curriculum.
We use school funds to subsidise the cost of all Educational Visits and Theatre Groups. We ask all parents, where possible, to make a voluntary contribution to help us sustain the quality and variety of activities taking place. As a guide, we’ve included an approximate voluntary contribution estimate, based on last year’s costs.
