Westbourne Senior School Educational Visits

undefined

We provides a range of educational outings from school  to support the  broad and balanced curriculum that promotes children's spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development, and prepares them for the opportunities and experiences of adult life.

In addition to each class's programme of learning for each school year,  teachers and governors agree the corresponding programme of visits and activities each academic year. Many outings and visitors provide experience in cross-curricular activities.

Details of these visits and activities are given to parents at the end of the old or beginning of the new school year and also termly in the School Calendar. Other visits, for example theatre trips, are planned as the school year progresses, taking advantage of professionals visiting the area and parents are informed of these by letter in due course.

Visits and activities usually take place within the school day. We follow the LEA's guidelines relating to health and safety, pupil/staff ratio etc and we ask parents to give written permission for their child to take part in any activity that takes children off the school site. If we do not receive this written permission, the child will be unable to participate.

There is not usually any charge for class educational activities on the school premises. Parents are informed of entrance fees and transport charges for out of school visits and these charges are usually added to the school bill.

All specialist activities are undertaken with qualified instructors. Skiing and Games residential activities are usually on offer each year. Language trips are arranged.  In Year 8 children are invited to spend a survival week in the UK.
