Carter's Charity Primary School believes that educational visits are an integral part of the entitlement of every pupil to an effective and balanced curriculum. Appropriately planned visits are known to enhance learning and improve attainment, and so form a key part of what makes our school a supportive and effective learning environment.
Carter's Charity Primary School adopts the guidance and procedures issued in the Lancashire County Council document “Educational/Off Site visits, Policy and Guidelines 2022-2025”. We take reasonable steps as stated in the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. This policy has been designed in line with the DfE and Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance and details our responsibilities for pupils while out on educational visits and school trips.
All children will be included on trips and educational visits regardless of their special needs, race, religion, culture, gender and gender orientation. Within the risk assessment the school will identify children with disabilities, special educational or medical needs, and address how their needs will be catered for. All educational visits must have specific stated objectives that are appropriate for the participating pupils.
