Primary Extracurricular Activities, Sept 2009-July 2010


This past academic year saw many varied school trips beginning in October 2009 and ending on the 5th July 2010. Besides those listed below which took place out of school, there were many other activities that were performed at school.

The school trips were well spread out throughout the year, except in the last term, when on a couple of occasions, two different year groups went out on the same day. This occurred because of the non-availability of venues, since the summer term is the busiest time of the year.

Transport and costs £££££

In the first term, public transport was used for most Key Stage 2 activities. However, by the last term, all classes, with the exception of year 4, used private transport. Many teachers felt that although private transport was expensive, it was worth the cost, for peace of mind and child safety.

The AMPA organised the booking of coaches and were very generous in providing each tutor with £200 which they could use to subsidise travelling costs or to purchase teaching resources.


The school trips were a great success and teachers’ comments were very positive.
Some parents volunteered to accompany the teachers and pupils on different excursions and they were very helpful.

Proposals for improvement:

• That all trips are planned at least six weeks in advance which gives parents enough time to be informed and send in payment. Venues require payment well in advance and can cancel if this is ignored.

A deadline must be set so that parents are in the knowledge that if authorisation and payment is not provided by the set date, their child will not be able to attend.
These measures would facilitate information of numbers, packed- lunch requirements and prompt payment of entrance tickets and workshops.It would make the organisation of school trips much easier.
