Dear Parents,

As most of you are aware we aim to improve our residential programme all the time and try to give you all as much notice as we can to allow you to prepare for the trips. We have looked at the centres we currently visit and a few more. The courses and centres we have chosen offer a progression in outdoor education through KS2.

We have provisionally booked Robinwood near Alston for a maximum of 39 children on 5th-7th May 2017. This is over a weekend as it keeps the cost down considerably. The children will depart from school at approximately 9.30am on Friday 5th May and return to school at approximately 4pm on Sunday 7th May.

The cost of the weekend will be £150 per child, this includes all food, transport and instructor led activities as well as use of waterproof clothing, wellies and any specialised equipment. We have visited Robinwood for many years now and it seems to get better every year.

To confirm a place could you please complete the consent form below and return with a £30 deposit by Monday 26th September and 3 further payments of £40 by 14th November, 9th January and 20th February.

I have enclosed an information booklet for you to have a look at with your child.

If you would like to discuss this any further don’t hesitate to contact me, parents and carers comments are always appreciated. Please see the centre website for more information www.robinwood.co.uk

Information has been sent to all children, however as we only have 39 places available at the moment, places will initially be offered to those who returned forms last term. Remaining places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Thank you
Mrs C Hardy
