York Residential Trip 2019
This year the residential trip to York will take place from Tuesday 2nd April to Thursday 4th April 2019.
We plan to leave school at 7.30am on Tuesday morning so children should be in school by 7.00am. The children will all meet in the infant hall with their luggage (parents are welcome to wait and wave goodbye!).
After a short break at Trowell Services around 9.30am, we expect to arrive in York for 12.00pm. After a picnic lunch by the river, the afternoon activities will start at 1.00pm and will finish late in the afternoon. We will then make our way to the racecourse for 5.30pm ready for dinner at 6.00pm.
On the day of departure, we hope to leave at around 12.30pm, returning to school by 4.30pm - 5.00pm. The racecourse will provide the children with a packed lunch. Any updates on the journey home will be sent out by Parent Text.
The children will be sleeping in accommodation at York Racecourse. There will be 3-5 children in each room and the staff on the trip will be sleeping on the same corridor. Staff are available throughout the night if necessary. There are washbasins and toilets in each room and showers are located on the same corridor.
The catering at the racecourse is very good and the kitchen will be informed of any specific allergies or dietary requirements prior to our arrival.
If possible the staff on the trip will send us photos for the website and we will upload them each day. We will also add any updates or information as and when we receive them. However, the WiFi connection at the racecourse is often temperamental so please don't be too disappointed if we are unable to put photographs on this page.
If your child has a Health Care Plan, please see Mrs Breen in the office as soon as possible.
Any medication should be given to Mrs Breen before the departure date if possible - please make sure it is named and the dosage clearly stated.
Mrs Watton is our First Aider and she will oversee and administer medication throughout the trip. Children are to carry their own inhalers if they use them. group leaders will carry a spare.
Travel sickness tablets are to be given to children before departure and tablets for the return journey should be provided and given to Mrs Breen.
