Trips

 

DSCF1088Our region is rich in opportunities to enhance and improve our curriculum. The full spectrum of outdoor education activities offer exciting and motivating visits that raise achievement in our pupils, and to broaden their life experiences. In particular, learning outside the school environment stimulates and reinforces positive attitudes to learning and behaviour. There is a focus on personal and social interactions and we build on strengths and interests of the pupils to develop confidence and interpersonal skills. The close interaction with the environment can do much to develop young people's awareness and understanding of issues such as sustainability.

 

To challenge our child and young people through these very real opportunities to learn and grow, we take the safety of our pupil, staff and volunteer helpers very seriously. We undergo a rigorous risk assessment and approval system, and seek approval from county for residential, and adventurous activities. All of our visits follow the advice given in the "Off-Site Activities and Educational Visits Regulations and Guidance" folder that is issues by Hampshire County Council.

However much we can plan and prepare for our visits none of them could take place without the wonderful superb of our parents, who all undergo a DBS check (formally CRB). So, if you have children at the school, and have some free time, you would be very welcome to come along and help on visits.
