In History, Year 1 have been learning about Florence Nightingale. To enhance our work we are planning to take the children to Claydon House. We will be looking at her life and work, and making comparisons between life in Victorian times and the present.
It will be an all day visit, leaving school at 9.30 a.m. and returning to school by 3.00 p.m.
The children will need a packed lunch, in a disposable named plastic bag, together with a drink of water in a disposable plastic bottle, so that they can be thrown away after eating.
If you have ordered a school meal for this day, an away day meal will automatically be ordered for your child. If you do not wish your child to have this meal, please inform your child’s class teacher in writing to cancel it and inform Chartwells.
On the day, children will need to wear their school uniform with a light waterproof coat and sensible shoes, as there will be a lot of walking during the visit.
The cost will be £10.25. You are not obliged to make a contribution to the cost of the visit and pupils will not be excluded through inability or unwillingness to pay. However, the visit can only go ahead if there are sufficient contributions to cover the costs. You are therefore invited to make a voluntary contribution to cover the cost. Please pay by cheque, if possible, made payable to Tickford Park Primary School and put it in an envelope marked with your child’s name.
If you have not already done so please return the proforma, with your contribution, cheques payable to Tickford Park Primary School, by Monday 18th June.
To ensure the school complies fully with the policy approved by the governing body, and meets Insurance and Health and Safety regulations, the following rule applies: where paperwork is not received in advance of a school trip your child will not be allowed to participate.
