We understand that some families do not wish their child to go on residential visits for reasons that relate to culture or particular individual circumstances. We would strongly encourage all children to take part in the residential as it is highly beneficial for their development. It is something they will really enjoy and have lasting memories of.


We would ask that you make a £25 deposit payment on line using our SchoolsBuddy system by Wednesday 28th February 2018.


Whilst the residential visit is taking place, children who have chosen not to attend will take part in a range of similar activities at school and in the local area.  Details of this will follow later in the year.

Please contact the office if you have any further questions.

Best wishes

K Hollingdale
