Educational Visits and School Journeys

During the school year educational visits take place in order to enhance the children’s learning. For such activities to take place parents should be aware that, where charging is permissible under the 1988 Act, parents will receive a letter asking for a payment contribution.






Swimming is deemed to be an essential element of the Curriculum at Key Stage 2 and may attract voluntary contributions towards, for example, payment of expenses in running the school mini-bus to and from the Baths, or the hiring of a coach.


Pupils who are entitled to remission are those whose parents are in receipt of Income Support. Those school journeys/visits that would qualify for full remission of board and lodging charges are those which:-

  • take place in School hours.
  • are part of provisions of the National Curriculum or part of the duty to provide religious education.
  • provide delivery of part of the Syllabus of prescribed public examination.
  • take place at an LA approved centre.

and must satisfy the LA rules and regulations relating to school journeys.

Any other charges will be of a minor nature but parents can rest assured they will be consulted at all times.
