Our curriculum at Llangrove CE Academy includes a wealth of opportunities to visit exciting places. We create learning experiences on these trips which children will never forget. Trips enjoyed by pupils include science sessions at Lewstone Farm; Goodrich Castle; Sealife Centre, Birmingham; St Fagan’s Heritage museum, Cardiff and Cadbury’s World, Birmingham.
We feel that it is important that children are involved in a variety of activities both in and out of school. A number of educational visits are arranged during the course of the academic year, when it may be necessary to meet the cost of transport, entrance fees, etc. Under the provisions of the Education Reform Act 1996, no charges may be made for any education provided during school hours. However, should they wish their child to participate, parents may be asked to make voluntary contributions. There is no obligation to contribute and no pupil will be omitted from such a visit, although the governors reserve the right to cancel any activity if the cost cannot be met by voluntary contributions.
School residential field-trips or activity holidays
The opportunity for our pupils to take part in residential trips is offered in both Year 5 and Year 6, in two different locations. Parents will be charged the cost of these extra-curricular activities. The governors will allow a remission of these charges if families are receiving Income Support. In other cases of hardship the governors have the discretion to apply a sliding-scale of charges. To apply for help in paying these costs, please contact the Headteacher. This information will be treated confidentially.
