School Visits

The school takes very seriously its responsibilities for ensuring the safety of children whilst on school trips. Every teacher completes a risk assessment before going on any educational visit. Every adult going on the trip is made aware of the contents of the risk assessment.
We use coaches and mini-buses only when seat belts are provided. We instruct the children to use seat belts at all times when the bus is moving.

Charging

All the education we provide during normal school hours is at no charge to pupils. We do not charge for any activity undertaken as part of the National Curriculum / Foundation Phase Curriculum, with the exception of some individual or small-group music tuition.

When organising school trips, visits, drama groups and shows to enrich the curriculum and the educational experience of the children, the school invites parents to contribute to the cost. All contributions are voluntary. If we do not receive sufficient voluntary contributions, we may cancel a trip. If a trip goes ahead, it may include children whose parents have not paid any contribution. We do not treat these children differently from any others.

If the school organises a residential visit in school time e.g. to the Urdd camp at Llangrannog, Storey Arms and Danywenallt in the Brecon Beacons, Abercraf in the Neath Valley in or mainly in school time, which is to provide education directly related to the National Curriculum, we do not make any charge for the education or travel expenses. However, we do suggest a charge to cover the costs of board and lodging, although parents who receive state benefits are exempt from this charge.
