Dear Parents & Carer,

I am pleased to be able to tell you that once again we have managed to book a suitable venue for a school residential trip for the summer term. After looking at other providers I am pleased to have been able to book Kingswood, Colomendy. They are able to offer adventures courses at a lower price than most providers.

The course we have booked is aimed at primary pupils and offers a powerful mix of active learning and fun. It helps pupils discover more about themselves, acquire and overcome obstacles and gives them a genuine sense of achievement all within a safe and supportive environment.

The dates for the trip are to be Friday 15th May to Sunday 17th May – taking place right after Y6 SATS tests. The cost of the trip will be £150. We have initially booked 80 places and would like to offer these places initially to year 6 children.

If you and your child are interested in your child attending this exciting residential then I would ask that you send in a non refundable deposit of £40.00 by Friday 9th December. I do realise that this is an expensive weekend and especially at this time of year your heart may sink at the price, but I have decided to plan much earlier this year to give parents the opportunity to pay a little weekly or monthly leading up to the trip. If there are any difficulties in paying the deposit but you would like your child to attend, then please do not hesitate to contact Miss Sime to discuss the matter further.

I am sure that this trip will be a fabulous experience for your children to maybe try activities that they have not tried before and to be away from home with their peers, increasing their self confidence and independence, prior to transition to secondary education.

On Friday 29th November I have arranged a parents meeting at 2.30pm in the school hall. At the meeting there will be an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the trip in more detail.

Looking forward as always to your continued co-operation,

Miss C Sime
Deputy Headteacher
