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.
Obviously recent events have meant that we have been unable to either go out to visit other educational settings or welcome visitors into school. We hope to be able to get out and about in the Spring Term 2021 but will follow Government guidance and Health and Safety best practice to decide what is best for our children.
Please find links below to some of the places we have visited in recent years visit and some of the people who have visited us. These may not be in the diary every school year but will give you a flavour of what you and your child/ren can expect. Please click the links to find out more.
