Expectations

At Croft Junior School we value the benefits of visits for your children, residential visits definitely included. For the safety of the group as a whole and individual children and staff we have a number of expectations of the children and their families. We must be confident that…

  • Instructions are obeyed instantly without question (initially).
  • Positive behaviour has been demonstrated within the school behaviour policy.
  • Children wishing to go have a proven good behaviour record on previous school visits.
  • Parents are 100% supportive of the school, its policies and its staff.

 

If there are any areas in which you are not 100% confident and supportive, think carefully whether you wish your child to go. Likewise, if we are not 100% confident of your support, we would not be happy to include your child.  In addition, should a child be persistently anti-social, rude or bad-mannered, we will bring that child home. We don’t however expect there to be any. These points are made and followed for the safety and enjoyment of the whole group.

 

Condover Hall

Extensive facilities. All bedrooms en-suite, with 3-8 children sharing. A bedroom preference form will be available prior to the trip. We ensure all children have at least one friend with them. It is in the interest of staff to get the rooms right.

 

Itinerary 

Varying outdoor and adventurous activities. A sample of activities is shown on the images in the presentation shared.

 

Meals

3 meals per day with dietary needs accommodated.

 

Medication

Pocket money

A small amount permitted – Maximum of £10 (to be confirmed). A member of staff will look after the money when not needed to ensure it is safe.

 

Communication

Please feel free to write to your children – they may like to get a letter. If you are not going to write, please do tell them so they are not upset when they do not receive something. There will be no phone calls to children as this can cause upset/homesickness.
