From time to time children are taken out of school for special visits or as part of their curriculum, for example to the local shops, parks, museum visits, swimming events, music events etc. You will receive a letter at the beginning of the school year which we ask you to sign to give permission for your child to be taken out of school.

Parents/carers are usually asked to make a contribution to the cost of visits. We aim to keep this cost to a minimum and subsidise where at all possible, e.g. through fundraising.

Your child will not be excluded from these activities if you do not make such a contribution. However, the activity may have to be cancelled if sufficient funds cannot be raised.

Year 6 children usually go on a residential visit. In the past they have gone to Llangollen, Colomendy, Barnstondale, Yorkshire and Shropshire. These residential visits are often outward bound focused. Children are able to take part in a variety of activities, many of which they have never experienced before.

Residential trips can be expensive, however the school always try to keep fees to a minimum; the classes often undertake some fundraising events to help with the costs.
