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’ learning experiences.
We plan and evaluate all of our off-site visits and ensure that any risks are managed and kept to a minimum for the safety and health of all pupils at all times. We seek to make sure our visits are available to all pupils and wherever possible, make them accessible to those with disabilities. The visits usually take place within the school day, but on occasions, take place after-school.
