School trips and events
Here at The Hythe School we offer a fantastic range of day visits and in-school visitors. These events help to enrich and enhance the children's learning whilst supporting the curriculum subjects.
To enable the trips and visits planned this year to go ahead we completely rely on the goodwill of, and encourage, parents to make a voluntary contribution. The PTA usually make a large contribution each year towards the overall costs which enables us to keep the price per pupil to a minimum. We are required, however, to point out that if we do not receive enough contributions towards the costs of these events then the activities will be cancelled. Therefore your support is invaluable in ensuring these can go ahead.
The Hythe School offers a secure, confidential online payment site at www.scopay.com. This is now our preferred method of payment. You will need an Activation Code for initial set up, please contact the school office or email email@example.com for details. Please note that we are now a 'cashless' school.
Important information as at 3rd March 2020
Dear Parent and Carers,
As you are aware, we are following the guidance and advice from Public Health England and monitoring the situation regarding coronavirus very carefully to ensure we, as a school, are minimising the risk of coming into contact with the virus.
In addition to this, we are following guidance from the OEAP (the lead body for outdoor learning and educational visits guidance, advice and training in England and Wales) and will be reviewing school trips and outings on an individual basis to ensure that we are reducing the risk of coming into contact with the virus. If a trip has been cancelled, we will do our best to rearrange the trip at a later date. We will inform you of any decision to cancel at the earliest possible time. If a trip goes ahead as planned, please be assured that the school will have followed up their procedures regarding coronavirus and that we will have assessed the trip as a very low to no risk category.
We are continuing to remind the children about good hygiene practices and value your support in keeping children at home if they are unwell.
Mrs A Peart
To comply with the correct adult to child ratio on school visits we occasionally require extra adult assistance. Please contact Mrs Adams, School Finance Assistant via the School Office if you are able to help and she will advise parents when extra help is needed with any trip.
Any parents / carers who wish to help on a school visit must complete an online DBS application. Please note that DBS applications are processed in the strictest confidence at no cost to our volunteers.
