We organise a range of school trips for all children throughout the school year, which are linked to their topics and learning. We are mindful of increasing costs but do rely on contributions from parents in order that trips can take place. We also lead residential trips for children in years 4, 5 and 6.
Under the terms of the Education Reform Act, 1988 we may not make a direct charge for each child but we ask for contributions. No student will be prevented from going on a trip if their parents are unable to pay for it, but if insufficient contributions were received, the school would have to consider cancelling the trip as there is no provision in the school budget. Should you wish your child to take part in a trip but you have difficulty in affording the contribution, please contact the school office in confidence to enable us to discuss ways in which we can assist you.
A consent form is sent home annually for parents to complete and sign which covers local trips and day visits.
