Educational Visits

School trips give pupils first-hand experiences that help their understanding of the content of the curriculum and benefit their personal development. We are committed to ensuring that educational visits take place regularly and build these into our curriculum. You can see the trips planned for 2019-20 below.

Organisation

We use an online system called Evolve to plan trips. Parents receive a form in an email with details of each trip. We do not send paper letters and we do not require parents to print and return forms; they can simply submit their response online. For most trips, we rely on parent volunteers to help supervise pupils. You can offer your assistance using the Evolve form.

 

We risk assess every trip and our teachers are trained and experience in managing visits. You can learn more about our trips on the News page, our Newsletters and from our Off-Site Visits Policy.
