Trips Policy

Trips and visits are designed to support the school curriculum or enhance it to promote students with exciting opportunities beyond the curriculum. . Going on a trip means more than simply leaving the school site, skills and social development learnt often goes beyond just the educational value of the trip.

The James Hornsby School follows advice and guidance from Essex Education visits to ensure guidance, training and health and safety are adhered to.

Students Attitude and Attendance in school will be considered when being invited to attend a trip or a visit. It is expected that students have good attendance and attitude at all times. If a trip forms part of the compulsory curriculum, the school will cover the cost or provide a significant subsidiary. If the trip is beyond the curriculum, is a reward or an enrichment opportunity, the cost of this will be passed to the parents/ carers and poor attendance or attitude may result in them not being invited.
