Here at Hampstead Parochial School, we actively encourage our teachers to plan trips that bring the work the children do in class to life.
Recently, we have visited the British Museum, The National Portrait Gallery, The Science Museum, The Wallace Collection and The Geffrye Museum. We travel by tube, bus or on occasion, coach and our teachers do a pre-visit risk assessment of both the journey and the destination.
By signing the Home School Agreement, you give your permission to allow your children to attend local visits not involving public transport. For the trips that involve public or private transportation, you will be sent full details of the trip as well as a permission slip to be signed and returned to the school.
Sometimes, we invite parents to join us on our trips to give us extra support in supervising the children but we ask that you don’t bring younger siblings with you who may distract you from focusing fully on the class you are accompanying. Please note that as much as we’d like to, we can’t accommodate every parent who wants to come on a particular trip.
Again as much as we’d like to, we can’t afford to cover the costs of transportation and entrance fees for these school trips and always ask for parental support in the form of a voluntary contribution. Please note that no child will be excluded from any activity purely on a financial basis and any difficulties are dealt with in the strictest confidence.
