Educational visits

An educational visit or school trip takes children and young people away from the classroom to another place to develop or improve learning. We support educational visits because they help pupils to develop and achieve more.

Our code of practice for educational visits is based on the Department for Education Health and Safety Advice for Schools.


Contact your child’s school first, if you have any further questions contact:
