Answer 5

How will my child be included in activities outside the school classroom including school trips?


We aim to include all children within school trips and activities outside the school.  As with all areas of the curriculum, we make reasonable adaptations in order to support your child to access these activities.  Your input is vital in planning for these activities.  You may be asked to support the school in developing a plan for these types of activities.  Adaptations range from having an adult assigned specifically to your child in order to support them in an unusual situation to using a specific form of transport for children who use a wheelchair. 


Within school, your child may require additional support at the start or end of the school day.  This may be provided through Teaching Assistant support.  If your child requires additional support at lunchtimes, this may be provided in a number of ways, including the ‘Lunchtime Club’ or an additional focus from a Mid-day Supervisor.
