During their time in school, children are given the opportunity to attend Residential Visits in each Year group from Y2.

Year 2 have previously visited Beeston Outdoor Education Centre for an overnight stay. From 2021/22, we are visiting a different centre - Fox Howl at Delamere. This visit enhances the children's work on minibeasts, habitats and food chains and includes a session with the Forest Ranger.

A two night stay in York enriches the Year 3 class’ work on Invaders and Settlers and allows for a hands-on experience of Viking life.

Pupils in Year 4 are offered a two night Residential Visit to Tattenhall, one of Cheshire’s Outdoor Centres. This is mainly an arts based visit where the children are taught by dance and art specialists.

Year 5 compare and contrast Llandudno with Nantwich. This two night residential visit also builds on the class’ work on Victorians earlier in the school year.

Year 6 visit PGL Boreatton Park in Shropshire for a multi-activity week. The children stay for 4 nights and experience activities such as climbing, abseiling, orienteering, raft building, canoeing, high ropes, trapeze and zip wire. All these activities support our outdoor education curriculum.

 

We like all pupils to attend the residential experiences to help them develop skills of self-sufficiency away from their family and everyday environment. School has various means of supporting families with the financial cost of these events. Please contact the school office, in confidence, to discuss this further.

All residential visits are approved by the Governing Body and follow East Cheshire Council Guidelines regarding risk assessments and adult ratios.

Each class usually arranges a day visit to support their termly topic; places visited include Chester, Tatton Park, Jodrell Bank, Brampton Museum and Nantwich. Workshops in school include building a Tudor House or Egyptian Pyramid and a visit from the volunteers at Little Moreton Hall.

 

We are really looking forward to the reintroduction of these visits during 2021/22, following the disruption caused by Covid-19
