Educational visits form an important part of our curriculum, as we firmly believe that children learn best when engaged in first-hand experience.
Visits are organised to comply with relevant guidelines and procedures. Educational experiences cannot take place without the cost of such visits being partly funded by parents. Parents will always be advised of the total cost for each child and the amount that they will be asked to contribute.
Each visit / activity will only take place if sufficient voluntary contributions are received to enable us to fund it. The academy does subsidise educational visits and every effort is made to keep the cost to a minimum. If the shortfall on voluntary contributions is so great that the visit / activity cannot proceed, all monies collected will be returned to parents.
