For non residential activities taking place during school hours, e.g. half or whole day visits, voluntary contributions will be sought from parents of participating pupils. Our Trustees are in agreement that no child will be excluded because of inability to pay, but if there are insufficient funds, visits may not be able to go ahead. For children for whom we receive Pupil Premium, the Academy will provide a 20% subsidy for educational visits and extra curricular activities.
For some visits parents will be able to spread the cost over a longer period of time and this timescale will be provided in the letter regarding the visit.
Wherever possible we like to give children first hand experiences as part of their studies.
Classes regularly go on educational visits to a variety of destinations.
