Excursions Policy

Educational Visits

During the year, classes leave the school to go on excursions of educational benefit.

A bus is used to travel where possible. A charge is made to the students to cover the cost of hiring the bus and any entrance fees.

Excursion notices will be sent home by the class teacher. Permission slips need to be completed for each excursion. Students Health Forms need to be completed at the beginning of each year and only updated if students details have changed.

Teachers will establish in writing the criteria students will need to meet to ensure they can attend the excursion. For example students who receive Detention during the course of the term may be excluded from the excursion.

Students going on a school or class excursions are expected to comply with the School Dress Code for reasons of safety. Students not in appropriate uniform are unable to leave the school.
