As you know from the text sent, the Government have extended the date that residential visits cannot take place to 31st March 2021. This means that our planned residential visit cannot go ahead next year. (Sadly, we only just missed out by 1 day)
Clearly we understand why this is but we are disappointed too as this experience is a wonderful opportunity for pupils.
I have spoken to the Lea Green staff and thankfully there is an alternative offer which doesn’t mean children sleep over (that’s the part that is not allowed) but will still give them an amazing experience.
Lea Green are offering us a full extended day visit instead which will include the same type of activities on the PowerPoint that you watched when you decided to let your child take part, e.g. ropes course, soft play area, treasure hunt, climbing wall, go-karts, obstacle course, team building games etc. They will also be provided with an evening meal.
To give them the fullest day possible, children will leave school at 8:30am (so will need to be in school at 8:10am). They will leave the centre at 6:25pm so will be back approximately 7:15pm.
They will still need to bring a packed lunch for lunchtime as they would have done originally.
The cost of this visit will be £25 per child, including all the activities, transport and evening meal which is still a very fair price.
We are offering this to the children who originally booked Lea Green first.
If you decide you want your child to take part in this extended day visit, the monies you have paid will transfer to this trip and any extra money you may have already paid will be refunded to you as soon as Lea Green return the money to us. This will most likely be in January.
If you decide you no longer want your child to take part, all monies you have paid, will be refunded to you in January when Lea Green refund school.
If we have spaces, we will offer to the other pupils in Y1 and Y2 who didn’t originally book the Lea Green trip.
If there is not enough interest, the whole trip will be cancelled and all monies refunded.
