Visits and outings
For whole-day trips and visits, details are given to parents/carers in advance. Consent forms, signed by a parent or carer, are required prior to the trip.
Trips usually involve public transport or hired transport. We usually request a voluntary contribution towards a particular visit. However, with limited funds available to subsidise trips, some outings may not be viable if sufficient money is not available. Once a child has signed up and paid for a trip, refunds cannot be made.
Safe and enjoyable trips depend upon pupils behaving well. Though very rare, a child whose behaviour would present a risk to themselves or others may not be permitted to participate in a trip .
Trips are insured and full risk assessments are carried out in line with Haringey Council’s regulations.
Year 6 children can spend five days at Pendarren House, Haringey’s outdoor adventure centre in the Brecon Beacons in Wales.
During the week the children experience a range of adventurous activities such as abseiling, canoeing, mountain walking and caving. These experiences are fun and allow the children to gain confidence and an awareness of their own potential.
In addition, our trips to Pendarren include visits to places of interest - including rural, industrial and mountainous environments.
Through the activities, the children are helped to appreciate and respect the countryside and develop an understanding of the importance of conservation.
