At Firs Primary School, we appreciate the value that first-hand experience can bring. The children are provided with opportunities to carry out a variety of activities within the local environment, as well as outings which take them further afield. Your child’s class may make local visits on foot from time to time, without your being notified in writing. However, when a visit entails travel by coach or car we will always ask you to complete a consent form. Classes are always well supervised, and safety is paramount.
Charging for School Activities
The 1988 Education Reform Act requires that all activities during normal school hours will be free. However, to enable educational visits to take place, parents may be asked for a ‘voluntary contribution’. No child will be placed at a disadvantage because of a parent’s unwillingness or inability to pay. Should the total voluntary contributions fall short of the cost of the activity, it may have to be cancelled.
We are however, delighted that all activities planned by staff have been carried out, thanks to support from the parents of our pupils.
Not long now until 21 children from Firs will be performing their very own song on stage @DerbyTheatre with @sinfoniavivauk. We are very excited and can’t wait to tell the story of ‘Energy’. Come and see us Tuesday 25th February at 7pm. #VivaEnergy
What a great end to the half term... This morning in Lively Laurels we looked at our finished art sculptures, complete with the captions we typed in computing. We even got some of our parents in to have a look. Have a happy and safe half term holiday everyone!
