Y6 Pettypool Overnight Residential

Start: 22nd May 2017 9:00am

We are aware that Year 6 are the only year group not to have been on a residential. (London was cancelled due to lack of interest). We have listened to your children and with lots of negotiating and working closely with The Oaks Academy we are so pleased to offer an overnight stay at The Pettypool Outdoor Centre in Northwich on Monday 22nd May returning Tuesday 23rd May. We will be travelling by mini bus and cars which will leave at 9.15am and we should be back at school by 3.15pm.

To try and keep the costs down we have asked The Oaks Academy if we can borrow their mini bus and they have agreed providing we pay for fuel! Therefore there will be no expensive coach bills to pay just £1.00 each way per child for fuel based on 15 children attending. The mini bus holds 15 passengers therefore any additional children wishing to attend will travel in a member of staff and/or Pettypool staff car. Mr Hassall (Site Manager) has kindly volunteered to drive the mini bus.

At the centre they will take part in; crates, climbing, leap of faith, zip wire (we know this is the one activity Y6 have always wanted to do) and low level team building. All food and drink will be included in the price. The children will be sleeping in dorms while at the centre.

We will provide a kit list and a full itinerary once we have established if this overnight trip will go ahead. Ideally we would like a minimum of 15 children to attend.

The cost of this visit is £80.00. A deposit of £10.00 is due on or before Monday 13th February the remaining balance of £70.00 is due on or before Friday 12th May please. Please only pay a deposit at this time as if the trip does not go ahead we can return this in full. Please complete the consent form below and return to school along with your payment by the dates outlined above. You can also pay online for all trips and visits by visiting; www.online.cheshireeast.gov.uk/SchoolShop. If we don’t have enough interest by the deposit deadline this visit will be cancelled.

We have spoken at length with the year 6 children and this visit will replace any other trips we have not yet organised for example the year 6 leavers trip on their last week. We will still do something memorable on their last day but it will take place in school. If this visit does not go ahead then further trips will be reinstated.
