Y5 Residential Trip to Castleton - November 2022

Many thanks to those of you who managed to attend the meeting on 12th July which gave us the opportunity to pass on a good deal of information about the forthcoming visit.

This visit is a key part of the year 5 curriculum so ideally we want everyone to take part. If you could not attend the previous meeting please do not worry, we will keep you informed of developments and there will be opportunities to meet class teachers on a 1:1 basis where necessary.

As we shared in the meeting, residential visits not only give children relevant first hand experiences but also the opportunity to develop independence and a chance to exceed in new ways outside the standard curriculum offer. They will make life long memories and strengthen relationships with their peers, learning new things about themselves along the way!

The party will leave school on the morning of Monday 7th November, we will spend one night at the Losehill Hall Youth Hostel, returning to school on Tuesday 8th November. Times will be confirmed in due course. We have lots of exciting and educational activities planned for the children including a tour through Treak Cliff Cavern and a walk through the countryside where we will see first hand the physical and geographical features of the land and how it has been shaped through time. We will also be running archery sessions, orienteering and shelter building activities so the children are sure to have a lot of fun too!

The total cost per pupil is £76, however if your child receives Pupil Premium funding their cost will be £50 as school will be subsidising the remaining amount. In order to secure a place for your child on the residential visit, you must pay a deposit of £15 via SchoolMoney by Friday 30th September. Without this deposit, we are unable to secure the rooms at the Youth Hostel and as such you could miss out.

Arrangements for payment of the remaining balance are flexible. Payment may be made in a lump sum or in smaller instalments, with the remaining balance to be paid in full by Monday 31st October.

If you are planning for your child to attend then please complete the consent form by clicking here.

If you have any questions regarding payment then please call the school office on 01709 710574.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Hayes & Miss Brown
