Going on school trips is an important part of the extra curricular timetable we are able to provide for the pupils at our school. The children are able to enjoy the wealth of museums, historical places of interest and art galleries that Staffordshire and the surrounding area has to offer. In addition we also have educational workshops who come in to lead special sessions for the children.
Each class / year group has the opportunity to go on a trip several times a year. We will upload a list for the proposed trips for the forthcoming academic year on the school calendar.

Whenever there is an educational visit (day trip or school journey) the lead teacher(s) always complete the schools Educational Visits Risk Assessment form. The risk assessment includes information ensuring:
The Leadership and Chair of Governors meet on a termly basis to carry out a review of proposed educational visits and school journeys. At each review we are mindful of the current level of safety and security in surrounding towns/cities.
