We have pledged to make day trips and the Christmas theatre trips free for as long as the money lasts. To this end we give the school £6,400 each year. The Head Teacher distributes this funding across the year groups as he see fit.
Although we cannot make the residential trips (eg Y6 farm journey & Y4 journey) free, we have pledged, for as long as the money lasts, to underwrite the journeys so that no child will be excluded due to financial circumstances.
Procedure for teachers
The PTA gives the total fund over to the HT to manage so teachers do not need to approach us – instead they should speak directly to the Educational Visits Coordinator before booking any trips. Please credit the PTA as follows on all consent forms and publicity material related to a trip:
“Your PTA is working hard to ensure that day trips, like this one, are free”
“Your PTA is working hard to ensure that no child will be excluded from a residential journey due to financial circumstances”
