Educational Visits

Educational Visits

We plan a number of educational visits during the year to places of interest in the local and wider area.  These visits provide a stimulus and outdoor learning environment for the children and offer an experience that would be difficult to create in school.  Often, visits include the contribution of experts in the subject being studied or professional artists.

Our Curriculum Visit Pledge

We aim for every child to have experienced the following visits by the time they leave our school:

  • features in the local area
  • at least one museum, e.g. Manchester Museum
  • a living museum, e.g. Stockport Air Raid Shelters
  • place of geographical interest, e.g. Rivers
  • the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry
  • an orchestral concert, e.g. Halle orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall
  • an art gallery, e.g. The Lowry or Manchester Art Gallery
  • a farm, e.g. Stockley Working Farm
  • a zoo, e.g. Chester Zoo
  • at least one visit to live theatre, e.g. The Lowry
  • different places of worship, e.g. churches (C of E, Catholic), Mosque (Islam), Gurdwara (Sikh)
  • at least one residential visit (see separate pages)

Most class teachers plan at least one educational visit per term, sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the topics they are teaching.

Parent Voluntary Contribution

Given the cost of transport to and from venues and the cost of entry and activities, we do ask parents to pay a voluntary contribution to most extra-curricular activities.  This is always less than the actual cost per child of the visit.  Without parent contributions, the school would not be able to offer the range of educational visits that it does.
