For the first time at Orchard Head School, Nursery pupils are to be invited to take part in school trips, along with those children in our upper foundation stage.  Pupils would need to be accompanied by an adult family member, e.g. parent/carer, grandparent, etc.

Two trips have already been considered by staff, but before any definite booking can be made, we need to know whether parents/carers would be interested.  Please see full details under the 'Letters and Information' section of our website.
