Learning is not just about what goes on in the classroom!
We offer a wide range of trips and visits that support learning, our curriculum and help children to explore and develop our school values of resilience, wellbeing, aspiration and engagement. Previously run trips have included The Deep, YHA Castleton, Rand Farm Park, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Gainsborough Old Hall and Gainsborough Library. All of our educational visits are overseen by Miss Lett, our Educational Visits Co-ordination (EVC).
We regularly invite visitors also come into school to meet the children and share information about their occupations, lives and experiences. Visitors have included local police officers, firefighters, nurses, dog trainers, our local Imam and religious leaders, Viking re-enactors, the Hedgehog Hospital and The Dogs Trust.
We routinely arrange educational visits to local areas of interest, such as churches as well as travelling by coach to museums and other areas of interest which relate to children’s learning.
We will always notify you via Arbor if we have planned any off site activities and seek your permission for doing so. We may sometimes ask for voluntary contributions to assist in the cost of such visits.
We also run 2 residential trips throughout our school year for our Year 4 and Year 6 pupils.
Year 4 Residential - Youth Hostel Association location that focuses on team building and survival skills for children.
Year 6 Residential - Youth Hostel Association location that focuses on pushing boundaries and stepping out of the children's comfort zones - this is definitely a little more adventurous!

The Head of School and teachers reserve the right to refuse to take any child whom they judge to be a health and safety risk due to behavioural issues or will adversely affect the well-being and happiness of the group.
It is the Trust’s intention to include all children on educational visits wherever practicable. However, children demonstrating persistent disruptive behaviour and violent or verbally abusive behaviour during the weeks prior to the visit may not be included. Parents and carers will always be notified if this is the case.
