Over the past years hundreds of Barrowcliff children have experienced field study visits. They always return enthusing about their experiences and looking forward to future visits. Some of the visits do not cost the school. However we may need to pay for a coach or entrance fee etc. Schools may request voluntary contributions for such visits. Realistically if a visit is not paid for by voluntary contributions then it may have to be cancelled and money refunded.
In Year 4 we hope that all children will take the opportunity to visit East Barnby for 5 days. The centre has expert staff, wonderful facilities and offers children a new experience, it builds confidence, teamwork and helps children realise hidden potential.
At the moment we use North Yorkshire Outdoor Centres because they offer a subsidy to all those in receipt of income support. The full cost needs to be met if you are not entitled to the subsidy. A meeting will be called a few weeks before each visit to give you all the information you should need and to tell you what equipment is needed. Your child should be at this meeting with you.
