Educational Visits

Hello, I am Mrs Harrison and I have the role of Educational Visits Coordinator (EVC) within school.  My role is to help the school fulfil its Health and Safety obligations for off-site school visits, by being involved in the planning and management of all educational visits.

 

Educational visits offer an invaluable opportunity to enrich young peoples’ learning, raise their self esteem, increase their motivation and appetite for learning and raise levels of achievement in many aspects of their life and education. Visiting new areas and exploring new environments broadens young peoples’ horizons and can deepen awareness of their own and others’ abilities and needs. Educational visits often provide the most enjoyable experiences and enduring memories from school days. Residential experiences, in particular, offer unique opportunities to encounter the practical realities of living together away from home, family and familiar surroundings. They provide a powerful vehicle for developing self-awareness and social skills. Adventure activities provide situations in which young people can gain personal fulfilment whilst developing the skills of co-operation, communication and teamwork. They can boost self-confidence and can open the door to a lifetime’s enjoyment of the outdoors.

September 2021 - July 2022

Visits will be planned for each year group.  In June 2022, Year 4 will be going to Wales and Year 6 will be going to Robinwood. Year 5 have a 'Camping under the stars' experience planned. More details will be sent out about these visits during the course of the year.

Leeds United visit - The winners of our competition finally got their prize, a guided tour of Elland Road stadium. It was a fantastic experience for the children as they got to see many of the places that the general public can't normally get to see.
