Newlands Spring Primary and Nursery School

school-trip

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 and Hedingham Castle in Year 1
  • Colchester Castle and Sealife Centre (Southend) in Year 2
  • 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 2021

In 2020/2021, the majority of our program of trips had to be suspended as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. However, we were fortunate that the ban on residential tips was lifted in time for our Year 6's to be able to enjoy their trip to Mersea Outdoors Centre.  

The children are having lots of fun in between the showers

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.

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