Baines School is pleased to offer our pupils an enhanced range of educational experiences, some of which take place away from the school site and involve residential holidays. The Headteacher, in consultation with colleagues and the school community, has responsibility for ensuring that the appropriate balance is struck between delivery of the core curriculum and off-site learning which can deepen understanding.
Statement of intent: Baines takes the health and wellbeing of our staff and students very seriously. Baines provides many opportunities to enrich the curriculum for its young people through off-site activities and educational visits. These include visits that fit with the curriculum and the department’s medium-term plan and enrichment trips that enhance a student’s learning experience in a broader context. The value of off-site activities and educational visits is well recognised by the Governing body and senior leadership team and fully supported throughout the School. Safety is recognised as paramount and careful planning and adherence to statutory procedures is essential. Off-site activities and educational visits are well managed in all instances and responsibilities are recognised.
