Throughout the year we hope to be able to enrich the curriculum by providing opportunities to extend learning beyond the statutory school day and beyond the school premises.
The Governing Body has given its approval to the following types of activities being arranged in support of the educational aims of the school:
- Out of hours clubs (e.g. drama, music, sport)
- Sports fixtures
- Local visits (e.g. places of worship, theatre trips, library)
- Day visits for particular year groups
We would like the children to be able to experience many different types of educational visits during their time at Millbrook Combined School and Nursery, to places of both cultural and natural interest. Educational visits are often an integral part of a term’s learning topic and provide a focus and stimulus for further studies.
These activities are made available to pupils by written invitation by class or by year groups. Before a visit takes place, the Headteacher and Educational Visits Co-ordinator must approve the initial plan and ensure that all necessary risk assessments have been completed. In order for educational visits to take place, parents may be asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the costs. Further information can be found within the school’s Charging and Remissions Policy.
