EGA School

Trips, Visits and Residentials

school trips

At EGA our aim is to create a community of successful learners and achievers who enjoy their learning.

Learning in context enriches the curriculum.  To this end we offer our learners opportunities to engage in activities which are additional to school based ones.  These include trips, visits, residentials and work related activities in a variety of organisations.

 

We are very clear about Health and Safety regulations and follow Government guidelines

 

A range of considerations are used before any trip is authorised:

 

Risk assessments considering the following will be carried out by the Group Leader:
 
types of activities
location
routes
type of transport
number of staff
experience of staff
age
competence and attitude of students
season
weather
timing
emergency procedures
 
Prior to the trip/visit, students and parents will be made aware of:
 
Code of Behaviour
the venue, the route and the type of transport
instructions in case students become separated from the group
the school telephone number
fire alarm procedures
what to do if there is an incident
the name of the member of staff i/c school journeys
students whose behaviour is a risk to self or others may be declined a place
students who fail to follow instructions may be accompanied back to school
cost if relevant
 
 
Before a student is allowed on a trip or visit the school must have received the following:
 
a consent form completed by parent
 
as well as the following items for a residential:
 
dietary or medical information (which will be carried by the teacher in charge)
 
Additional information:
 
all students must wear a seat belt if travelling by coach
a school first aid kit and mobile ‘phone will be taken on the visit/journey
an emergency contact number sheet will be taken on the visit/journey
staff will carry a list of the students on the visit/journey which will include emergency contact numbers for the parents (a copy of this will be left at school with the member of staff i/c school journeys)
regular head counts will be taken.
