At Beever Primary School we believe that educational visits play an important part in the overall development of the child. These allow them the opportunity to participate in, and benefit from, a range of activities and experiences that serve to extend and consolidate their learning, as well as develop their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) awareness and understanding.
We aim to provide children with experience of a rich variety of environments which contribute to making learning enjoyable and enabling the children to visit places they might not otherwise see and undertake activities in which they might not otherwise participate.
Recent educational visits have included:
Year 5 and 6 pupils making a joint visit to the Lowry Theatre for a performance of Shakespeare’s, ‘The Tempest’.
Year 3 pupils visiting the Portland Basin museum in Ashton for their Victorian topic and Year 2 children visiting Liverpool’s ‘Spaceport’ as part of their topic on ’Space’.
Beever Primary School, in recognition of the importance of these educational visits, heavily subsidises all out of school trips to ensure the cost to parents is kept to a reasonable amount. We use pupil premium grant funding to support this.
