Educational visits are part of the delivery of the National Curriculum and, as such, are an integral part of the teaching that goes on in the school.
The governors have agreed that only coaches with seat belts will be used to transport the children on such visits.
Whenever the children leave the school premises, the supervisor-pupil ratio will be as follows:
Under 5s 1:6
Under 8s 1:8
Over 8s 1:12 (local visits 1:20)
Parental consent is always sought before an educational visit except for those within ½ mile of the school. Upon their child’s entry into school, parents are asked to give their consent to these outings close to the school which include walking to St Mark’s Church.
As school budgets decrease and outing costs rise, parents are asked to make a contribution, if possible, to the cost of these educational visits.
Every two years the children in class 5/6 attend a residential trip to Sayers Croft Field Study Centre.
