Our children are very lucky to go on a variety of educational visits throughout the school year. Each visit is specifically tailored to coincide with a relevant learning topic and enriches the teaching and learning by taking it outside of the classroom and into a practical setting.
We also regularly welcome visitors into school who can add value to the children's learning.
Please find links below to some of the places we intend to visit this year and some of the people who are booked to come and visit us. While they may not all be in the diary every school year, they will give you a flavour of what you and your child/ren can expect. Please click the links to find out more.
