Educational Visits and Charging Policy for School Activities
During the school year we plan visits out of school. These visits are linked to a topic or subject being studied and all children are expected to participate. For many of these local visits there are no costs involved, but when there is a charge for admission or transport we ask parents/carers to make a voluntary contribution to cover the cost.
A parent's inability or unwillingness to pay does not prevent a child from taking part in the activity, but if there are insufficient contributions the activity may be cancelled.
Pupils in Years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in residential visits to Robin Hood’s Bay and Bewerley Park Outdoor Centre. This is a valuable opportunity for pupils to experience being away from home whilst being supported by staff they know well.
