Offsite Visits

Some of our recent trips.


Educational visits are activities arranged by or on behalf of the school, and take place outside the school grounds. The governors and teaching staff believe that off-site activities can supplement and enrich the curriculum of the school by providing experiences which would otherwise be impossible. All off-site activities must serve an educational purpose, enhancing and enriching our children’s learning experiences.

          The aims of our off-site visits are to:

  • enhance curricular and recreational opportunities for our pupils;
  • provide a wider range of experiences for our pupils than could be provided on the school site alone;
  • promote the independence of our children as learners, and enable them to grow and develop in new learning environments.

These visits begin with excursions into the local area in the Early Years, and progress to a residential experience at the end of Key Stage 2.

Residential activities

Children in Year 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in two residential visits. These visits enables children to learn various skills, as well as take part in outdoor and adventure activities as part of their PE work. We undertake these visits only with the written agreement of the LA. We ensure that there are qualified instructors for all specialist activities that we undertake. We do make a charge for board and lodging, insurance and specialist instruction for certain activities.
