Dear Parents

On Friday 16th September, all pupils in Year 6 will be visiting Billingham Community Centre to take part in the “Stockton on Tees Crucial Crew Event 2016”, an interactive safety initiative organised by Stockton Borough Council.

The theme of this initiative is child safety and crime prevention and its format is very practically based, giving children “hands on” experience in various problem solving scenarios.

Pupils will leave school at 8.55 on Friday and will return at approximately 11.45. Travel to and from the venue will be on the school minibuses. There is no charge for this event.

Staff from Red House School will, of course, accompany the pupils and will remain at the Centre throughout the event. Staff will take a first aid kit with them, and there are first aid facilities on site. 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. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leader. 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.

Pupils are to wear their normal school uniform. Please ensure if your child suffers from asthma or severe allergic reactions their inhaler/medication/epipen is with them. If they do not have them, they will be unable to go on the trip.

If you require any further information regarding this visit, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully

Miss T White

Key Stage 2 Co-ordinator
