8.    How will my child be included in activities outside the classroom including school trips?

Will she be able to access all of the activities?
This depends on the nature of the disability.  Every effort is made to include all students but, where there may be health and safety concerns, alternative arrangements are made.

How will you help her to be included?
A range of strategies will be employed.  These may include:

  • 1:1 adult support
  • Alternative transport arrangements
  • Use of specialist equipment e.g. wheelchairs

How do you involve parents/carers in planning activities and trips?Parents/carers are always kept fully informed of school trips.  Specific areas of risk are always brought to the attention of parents/carers in letters home with accompanying consent forms for signature.  Medical and emergency contact details are always requested.  In cases of severe need, parents/carers will always be consulted in person.
