The School prides itself on providing a wide range of trips, visits, visitors and extra-curricular opportunities for all our pupils. Learning outside of the classroom is an extremely important part of giving children the experience and wider knowledge that inspires them to discover and investigate beyond the school day. Working with a range of experienced and innovative providers, we encourage our children to think about issues beyond school, beyond Lingwood and open up a world of learning.
All our trips and visits outside of school are carefully planned and risk assessed by the staff leading the trips. They are all linked to the learning pupils carry out in the classroom. Teachers are encouraged to consider wider opportunities when planning their themes and teaching for the year.
Some trips and visits are opportunities presented to the school at quite short notice. We will however always try to give parents the maximum notice for such events, as well as finding the most cost effective option, without compromising safety or enjoyment. All school trips are monitored by Norfolk EVOLVE.
