Success stories so far this year...
Sports fixtures and local trips:
From time to time students may participate in “zone 1” visits as defined within our Educational Visits policy, specifically:
- Walking into the local town of St Ives, including buildings available to the general public, for example businesses, shops, post office, library, museum and places of worship.
- Local field work within the town boundary.
- Non-residential sports fixtures.
- Timetabled courses at local colleges, for example car mechanics.
Staff will plan such visits thoroughly, including ensuring that an appropriate staff to student ratio is in place and that they have access to parents contact details. However, for these visits, the school will not typically ask parents/carers for separate consent. In the case of sports fixtures which run outside of the normal school day, it is the responsibility of the student to inform parents/carers of the details of the visit, including the venue, departure and return times so that parents/carers can ensure students have a safe way to then travel home.
Parents/carers have the right to withdraw consent for their child to participate in zone 1 visits. To withdraw consent please email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Dr M Craig, Deputy Headteacher.
