Hints for Teachers
Check the pupils know that it is vital to bring warm and waterproof clothing.
Every child should bring a named water bottle.
Pupils should wear trainers or similar shoes, not flip flops or open toed sandals or slip on shoes.
All clothing and possessions must be named.
We throw away many, many items because we cannot identify the owner.
Torches and batteries are very important particularly on camping courses.
You may wish to bring some games equipment for break times.
The school or children should bring bin liners for wet clothing.
Please ensure that all medication needed by group members is brought to the trip, is stored appropriately and is taken with them as necessary (eg. inhalers)
There is a small shop for sweets and drinks etc. We recommend that children only bring a small amount of money.
The school is responsible for this money.
