These programmes are aligned with the National Curriculum.

CLASS TRIPS AND VISITS:


As part of the class programme, day visits (or in the case of middle or senior schools, up to five day camps) are undertaken by classes. These are a valuable extension of the class programme and involve a large amount of work and organisation. However, their value is unquestioned.


Parent/caregiver help on such excursions is essential and any offers of transport or supervision at these times are greatly appreciated. Parents/caregivers offering transport are requested to be fully licensed, with a warranted and registered car. All occupants must wear a seatbelt and the driver must hold a full licence.
