Arthog Visit 2020-2021

16th October 2020 update:

Arthog have now released an updated statement.  Unfortunately, they are unable to provide their normal residential provision under the current guidance from the Department of Education.  Residential provision will continue to be off-line throughout the Spring term.    We hope to collaborate with the Arthog Outreach centre to provide the children in Year 6 with an alternative outdoor education experience, in school and in our local environment. 

Parents will receive a full refund of any monies paid to school.  We will be in touch with you again after the half term to arrange the necessary refunds.

Thank you for your patience during these challenging times.

September update:

As many of you are aware, current guidelines from the DfE do not allow for overnight school trips.  The Arthog Centre is not open for any visits during the Autumn term but they hope to re-open on 3rd January 2021.  We are hoping our visit will go ahead as planned so are still asking parents to pay the £100 deposit to secure a place for their child (deposits were due by 25th September but we have extended this date to 30th September). If current restrictions to overnight school trips are extended through to the Spring term, parents will receive a full refund of any monies paid to school.   The date for final payment to school was Friday 16th October 2020, however, as we are expecting an update from Arthog in mid-October we have changed this date to Tuesday 3rd November 2020.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
