From Year 3 onwards children go on an annual residential trip, these are something that the children keenly look forward to.
Residential trips give the children opportunities interact with their peers in a different environment and further cement their relationships outside of school. Children also gain self confidence, independence and learn to appreciate the countryside and outdoor opportunities. The educational residential trips enable the children to safely explore a range of challenging activities, often learning new skills and leaving them with a great sense of achievement. You will be invoiced for the residential visit in the Autumn term as this is when we need to make payments to the providers. If you have any concerns about your child’s suitability for a residential visit then please chat them over with your class teacher.
