Newlands Spring Primary and Nursery School


Children at Newlands Spring Primary and Nursery School are given the opportunity to learn outside the classroom. We believe that these educational visits enhance the school curriculum.

Past trips have included:

  • Haningfield (wildlife Trust) in Foundation Stage
  • Marsh Farm in Year 1
  • Hedingham Castle and Sealife Centre (Southend) in Year 2
  • Colchester Castle in Year 3
  • Colchester Zoo in Year 4
  • France and Harlow Activity Centre in Year 5
  • PGL Osmington in Year 6

We strongly encourage all our parents to allow their child to attend these valuable events.

Residential Trip 2023

Our Year 6 children are currently enjoying their residential trip to Bawdsey Manor

Charging and Remission

Parents are asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of the school visits, covering the cost of visits, travel and admission charges. Without such contribution educational visits would not be financially viable. However, the school is keen that no child misses a visit due to their parent's inability to play. Should this be a concern parents can contact the Business Manager or Pastoral Manager to discuss this. All conversations will be dealt with in confidence.

A full copy of the school's charging policy is available here

In addition to arranging educational visits, the school regularly hosts visiting artists, musicians and authors who perform to the children and lead workshops.
