Cast your mind back to your own school days. What do you remember? We bet you can remember going somewhere exciting with your class.
We know that educational visits not only add to and enhance learning but they can also provide life changing experiences and memories. At Willow Lane we aim to include one educational visit per term per class to venues including museums, the beach, farms, wild habitats and local castles. Furthermore, we also know that residential (overnight) trips help children grow and enjoy new experiences and we are proud of our visits to Tower Wood (outdoor centre on the shore of Lake Windermere) and London for older children.
All of our trips, be they in the school day or overnight, are risk assessed and have the necessary high ratios of adults to children including first aiders. For some visits we ask for voluntary contributions but we believe money shouldn’t be a barrier to these vital experiences so work with families to make sure all children can take part.
