Educational visits are taken to places of interest to enhance curriculum work. These could be as near as the local park, Sefton Coast, or a destination where coach/train travel is necessary e.g. The Lake District.
Visits are targeted at enhancing our children's learning and social experiences.
The children benefit greatly from these experiences, both educationally and socially. There is usually at least two educational visit per term, per class.
Parents are invited to make a voluntary contribution to cover the cost of educational visits. Without this financial support, the visits could not take place. The Head Teacher has the right to cancel any trips if there are insufficient voluntary contributions (see Charging Policy).
Children in years 2,3,5 and 6 also have the opportunity to go on a residential visit. We aim to give as much notice as we can, to ensure that the costs of these can be paid over a long period. No child will be excluded from these visits because of financial restrictions, however, if there are insufficient voluntary contributions the viability of the trip may have to be reassessed.
Please see below for an overview of trips, with estimated costings.
