VISITS

Across the Federation

As a Federation, we consider that educational visits are a valuable tool in enhancing learning throughout the curriculum.

Children in Reception to Year 2 children participate in a number of days trips including Corfe Castle, Lorton Meadows, Monkey World,  Pirates Cove and Sandsfoot Castle.

Children in the Junior School participate in day trips to Maiden Castle, The Nothe Fort, Lorton Meadows, WOEC and sailing.   In addition to there are also three residential visits – In Year 3 the children have an overnight camping adventure in Wareham Forest at Carey Camp.  In Year 4, pupils embark on a two night residential visit at Leeson House in Langton Matravers and in Year 6, the children take part in a week of outdoor activities at PGL Little Canada on the Isle of Wight.

 

Full risk assessments are conducted for all educational visits and off-site activities

The school subsidises the cost of trips and visits as much as possible, however it is usually necessary to ask parents/carers to make a voluntary contribution.  It would not be possible to organise such experiences without contributions from parents and we are very grateful for any received.

Parents/Carers must give separate written permission for their child to participate in visits requiring transportation by completing the slip provided in the letter advising the trip is taking place.  Visits in the local area are covered by the permission given on the admission form.

Without consent being received, the child will not be allowed to take part in the visit.

 

When appropriate, we welcome parental help in school and on educational visits.  Your childs class teacher will advise you as and when additional helpers are needed.
