'The bits I most remember about my school days are those that took place outside the classroom.' Alan Bennett
At Morley Victoria we are always striving to provide a rounded curriculum full of memorable experiences for all of our children. As part of this, our teachers spend a huge amount of time planning how to bring the curriculum alive by organising visitors and trips. Over the year we provide many opportunities for our children to participate in outdoor learning by using our school grounds, our local area or planning trips. We are always looking at different destinations to allow our children to experience a range of different activities.
We are diligent in carrying out risk assessments before our visits to ensure that the health and safety of our children is considered - this is of paramount importance to us. We seek your permission and sometimes ask for adult volunteers to accompany the children. It is our policy to ask you to be part of a group that does not include your child, we see this as being part of our risk assessment to make it fair for all children.
Here are some of the places we have recently taken our children to:
Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Cannon Hall Farm
Liverpool Maritime Museum
The Rainbow Factory
At the start of their school career we obtained your permission to take the children out into the local area to places we can walk to. On other occasions when we are going further afield we require your permission to take your children out of school. Below is a downloadable, generic Permission Form that can be used if needed. Please note that it has to be fully completed and handed in to the school office before the trip takes place for us to be able to use it.
