Residentials

The children in Years 4 and 6 will have the opportunity to take part in residential trips arranged by the school with various external providers.


The Year 4 trip is a two-night stay at Grosvenor Hall. This is a great opportunity for the children to experience some challenging outdoor activities under the instruction of qualified instructors whilst in the care of Lime Tree staff.

The Year 6 residential is a four-night stay at the UK Sailing Association facility on the Isle of Wight. The children have the opportunity to take part in lots of activities including dingy sailing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, windsurfing and raft building.

All trips are paid for via ParentPay and full payment must be made prior to the final deadline.

Unfortunately any deposits paid cannot be refunded.

The deposit letter for the Year 4 and Year 6 Residentials for Summer 2022 has now been sent out and the deadline to sign up has finished. A further letter giving details of the balance payment will be sent out shortly.

More specific details about both trips will be sent out later this term and there will also be a parent meeting.

Covid Insurance

The following is the most recent advice from the Borough Insurance Officer as to the circumstances they believe the school's insurers would and wouldn't cover for trips:

COVERED

· If one pupil cannot go on the trip because they, or a member of their family or bubble, or other classmate not due to go on the trip, gets COVID-19 and has to self-isolate, they will be covered for non-refundable costs; · If a member of the family is hospitalised or dies of COVID-19 and the pupil cannot go on the trip, their non-refundable costs will be covered; · If a pupil or adult leader catches COVID-19 or tests positive while on a trip, their medical costs would be covered and any extra costs due to quarantining abroad would be considered, but only for the person who is sick, not other travellers.


NOT COVERED

· Loss of deposits, travel, flights and accommodation arising out of cancellation due to disinclination to travel will not be covered; · Cancellation due to changes in government regulation in this country or any destination country will not be covered; · If the whole class has to isolate and none of them can go, but have not tested positive themselves, AIG would need to consider this; however the general feeling is that if no one is ill or injured it is likely that there would be no cover.

· The extra costs of quarantining in this country on return or abroad would not normally be met if no one is actually ill.
