There is an annual residential course for the Year 5 and 6 children. One year we have a four day visit to a city, and the next year, an outdoor educational course. In March 2017 we visited Derwent Hill Outdoor Centre in Portinscale, Keswick, and in 2018 we visited Edinburgh.
We have recently introduced a residential for years 3/4 children to Derwent Hill Outdoor Centre.
We feel these visits are very helpful in broadening children’s experiences and spending time away from family encourages independence. The visits have strong curricular links and safety is paramount. School adopts the county council’s guidance and procedures for health and safety in relation to educational visits outside of the classroom.
