Educational visits and visitors have great value both socially and academically; they enrich the curriculum provision and provide many opportunities not normally available within school. As a school we provide many opportunities for children to enrich and enhance their on-site learning through use of outdoor education and off-site educational visits.
We offer a variety of school trips for all three year groups. Last year, Reception visited Sayers Croft, our local outdoor experience centre, and the Working Museum at Amberley near Arundel. Year 1 made visits to Haslemere Museum and Sayers Croft, and joined Year 2 on a visit to the Weald and Downland Open Air Musuem near Chichester. Year 2 also visited the RHS Gardens at Wisley to look at the butterflies in the Glasshouse, and in the summer term there is a trip for the whole school, which last year was to the RHS Gardens at Wisley.
All school trips are subject to and adhere strictly to our Policy for Outdoor Education and Off-site Educational Visits, which covers such areas as pre-visit risk assessments, correct supervisor ratios for adult to child, and DBS checks for all accompanying parents. We always use a local coach company which adheres to the Surrey CC Blue Badge Scheme, which ensures that all drivers have DBS clearance, and that all coaches must be fitted with seatbelts.
