Visits out of School
To support and enrich the curriculum teachers may take their children for educational visits, e.g. to museums, outdoor education centres, art galleries etc. We may also have visitors to school who can provide special expertise. Some of the cost of these visits is paid for from School Fund or from the school budget from the local education authority.
Parents are no longer obliged to pay for these visits or for materials used by the children. However, if an activity cannot be funded without your voluntary contributions, then this will be made clear at the outset.
Staff take the Y2 children for an overnight stay to the outdoor education centre at Burwardsley and Y4 enjoy an overnight stay at Beeston. Y6 go for 3 days to an outdoor activity centre called the Kingswood Centre in Denbigh, North Wales.
