On the morning of Tuesday 1st December our pupils in Years 4 and 6 have been invited to the Faculty of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health at Durham University, Stockton Campus. The purpose of the visit is to see a display of the work that the pupils completed in September with Mrs Pam White, Dr Judith Donkin and Francis Dunne, a 5th year medical student. You may recall that they visited the School to support the pupils’ science work on healthy living and muscles and movement.
Pupils will be transported to the Faculty on the School minibuses and will be accompanied by members of staff. Normal school rules will apply, including the wearing of uniform, the prohibition of sweets and chewing gum. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders. A qualified first aider will accompany the pupils. Please ensure if your child suffers from asthma or severe allergic reactions their inhaler/medication/epipen is in school, if they do not have them, they will be unable to go on the trip. 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. There will be no charge for this trip.
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.
If you have any questions regarding this visit please do not hesitate to contact me either via the school office or email firstname.lastname@example.org
