Dear Parent

Year 5 pupils will visit Eden Camp on Thursday 26th May 2016. The pupils will explore various exhibits such as ‘the Blitz’, ‘the home front’ and ‘the U-boat menace’ to support their learning in our history topic about the Second World War.

The cost of the trip will be £3. Pupils will leave school at 8.45 am and return to school at approximately 3.50pm for pupils to be collected as normal at the end of the school day. We will travel on school minibuses.

Pupils should wear full school PE kit (tracksuit bottoms, school hoodie, outdoor trainers and waterproof coat). Pupils will also need to carry any necessary medication (epipen or inhaler). A packed lunch will be provided for pupils and children can also bring a snack as they would for a break time. Pupils will have the opportunity to visit the gift shop at the museum. We would ask that pupils bring no more than £5.

A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders. The trip will be subject to the conditions as set out in the Parent Contract, and will be covered by the school’s insurance policy. Staff will take a first aid kit with them, and there are first aid facilities at the site. Personal items such as, personal stereos, iPods or cameras are not allowed. The school cannot be held responsible for the care of these items if any pupil brings them, and insurance will not cover them. We endeavour to take photographs on as many school trips as possible, please visit our website, Facebook and twitter pages to view a selection of photographs.

I am also requesting permission for Eden Camp to use photographs taken on that day for promotional posters which will be used at Eden Camp and possibly other events. Therefore I am asking if you could complete the form below if you will allow child’s image to be used.

Yours faithfully

Mr P Heaton                             Mrs R Coverdale
