Educational Visits

 Year 5 Residential VisitAll our children enjoy many varied educational trips and residential visits during their time at our school.

All our children are given the opportunity to take part in school visits.  The majority of the visits take place in terms 4, 5 and 6.  They may range from a visit within easy walking distance, a day visit further afield or an extended residential stay.

Residential visits take place in Years 4, 5 and 6

Year 4 visit the PGL centre at Caythorpe.  This involves a two night stay, where expert tuition is given in a wide variety of adventure activities.

Year 5 venture further afield, on a three night stay to Grange-over-Sands in June.  Here they study the environment in particular rivers and participate in craft activities and outdoor pursuits.

Year 6 cross the channel to Chateau de Chantereine near Criel-sur-Mer in France.  During their five-day stay they have the opportunity to look at nearby World War 1 sites, spend time using their French at the local market and visit Rouen for a day.

Charging and Remissions Policy

The Governors have a policy of charging for board and lodgings on residential visits and for individual music tuition.  Parents/Carers are asked to make a voluntary contribution to the cost of travel and entrance fees on day visits.  No child is prevented from attending, or is otherwise penalised, if he/her parents do not pay.  However, our ability to provide a programme of day visits clearly depends on the level of contributions received.
