2021 Residential


What are the trip dates?

Monday 24th May - Friday 28th May 2021

What happens on the day?

Children will need to arrive at school from 8.30 with their suitcases. We will register at 8.45 so that we can leave on the coach before 9am. 

The journey will take 30-40 minutes.

Children will have time to settle in at the centre in the morning and activities will commence after lunch.

What happens on return?

On Friday, children will have activities in the morning and lunch at the centre. We then have a debrief session and the children will return to school ready for hometime at 2.50

Which staff will be attending the residential?

Miss Wood and Mrs Shaw will be staying with the children for the week. 


Where do children sleep?

St Johns girls will be housed in 1 building with either Miss Wood or Mrs Shaw sleeping in an adjoining room.

Boys will be sleeping in another building, again with an adult nearby.



Children will have meals provided throughout the visit including lunches on arrival and departure days (Monday and Friday).

The centre recognises the children will burn more calories than usual on a residential visit since they are so active and meals reflect this (we never go hungry). 

Breakfasts will consist of fruit, cereals and a hot choice e.g. beans on toast. 

Children will be provided with packed lunches - a range of sandwiches, fruit, crisps and a biscuit. 

Children have a choice of meals and salad bar at dinnertime which also includes a dessert.


What about Covid-19?

School and site staff will be accessing lateral flow tests. There is now only 1 other school on site who will be housed in a different building. Schools will not share toilets or showers with other school groups. Please see the Stanley Head Covid-19 risk assessment below.

What if you need to contact me or my child is ill?

We will take a full contact list with us to the centre and will contact you in the same way as we would in school if your child is feeling unwell. 

The staff at the centre are all first aid trained and we take a school set of medicines for use in an emergency (calpol, piriton etc.)

Other than that, there will be some contact via the school messaging service and the school website so you know the children are there safe and enjoying the activities. This is only updated when Miss Wood has a free 5 minutes (usually late in the evening) but we will try our best! Try to enjoy the time your child is away and we promise to look after them.
