Trips and Visits
A blanket consent for Education Outside the Classroom is required from all families on enrolling at school. This covers events on-site and off-site in the local community during school time or after school in lower risk environments. Off-site residential events and higher risk environments whether on-site, local or off site require a separate consent for each event or programme. Trips and visits are undertaken following syndicate planning, which establishes purpose and content. Parents are asked to help with transport and sometimes buses are paid for by families when necessary.
It is a requirement that all motor vehicles used for the transportation of students have a current WOF and registration and seat belts for each student carried. Dependent on the age and size of children, booster seats are available at school for use when appropriate, eg children under 148cm tall and age 5-10.
