Year R School Trips to Dell Quay in July

Next half term, we will be taking the Year R children on an educational school visit to Dell Quay. This trip will support the children’s learning topic in the Summer term “Mini Beasts”.


The trip will take place on:

Friday 14th July for Squirrels;

Monday 17th July for Rabbits

Wednesday 19th July for Owls


We will be leaving the school by Mini bus at 9:30am and returning at 2:30pm to arrive back at school at 3:00pm.


As with all school trips and visits, there is a cost attached. We have tried to minimise this as much as possible and would advise that the cost for this trip works out at a contribution of £10 per child which includes guided adult sessions at Dell Quay and return Mini bus travel.


To assist you are now able to pay for the trip by using the payment system on the Parent Mail App or alternatively you can send in cash to school in an envelope with your child’s name and class on the front, stating it is for the Dell Quay Trip.

We will require payment and consent forms to be submitted to school by Friday 30th June.


Though we understand that, especially at this time, many family’s finances are stretched, we will be unable to run this trip without sufficient contributions from parents.


We will not be able to run this trip without support from parents on this trip, if you are able to help as a parent volunteer who can drive themselves and their child to the trip as a volunteer helper please indicate on the separate parentmail trip consent form (being sent later today). Unfortunately, there isn’t enough room on the mini buses for all adults.

Please do come and speak to Miss Treagust or Mrs Chambers (our Child and Family Support Worker) if you require support with this.

We would be grateful if you could complete the trip consent form as soon as possible, even if you are intending to pay nearer the date of the trip.

For the visit please could your child wear their full School Uniform, as they are representing the School in a public place. Also ensure they have suitable footwear preferably wellies or shoes that can get wet for the visit, a waterproof coat if weather is wet or alternatively if the weather is sunny, please apply suncream and provide your child with a hat.


If you require any further information about the trip, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher or member of the Year R team.


Many thanks
