Please note due to the coronavirus restrictions special events and visits may not take place this academic year.

**Update April 2021**

We are delighted that the DfE now permits educational day visits to take place. Every class will go on a trip during this summer term, details to follow. Unfortunately, residential visits are still not permitted so it will not be possible for the bi-annual year 5 & 6 residential trip to take place, however we will ensure their class trip is memorable!


All classes take part in school visits to support their learning. Special events and visits are planned to fit within a sequence of work to enhance the acquisition of knowledge. These may include visits to places of historical, geographical or scientific importance such as Harewood House, Bradford Industrial Museum, Brimham Rocks, Saltaire, or museums and heritage sites. Children in years 5 and 6 take part in a residential visit to Seahouses in Northumberland.  We also invite visitors, including parents in to school to run events aligned to our curriculum to enhance pupils’ knowledge. Examples of recent visitors have included: theatre groups, artists, religious groups, the emergency services, authors, historians, Olympic athletes, parliamentarians and the NSPCC.

Music, drama and sport activities are highly valued as part of the broader curriculum. They enrich the knowledge and skills taught in other subjects. Such visits may include the Ilkley Literature Festival, theatre productions, Swimming Galas, intra school sporting competitions, Cross country running competitions, intra school house debating competitions and art exhibitions.

We are supported by an excellent PTA who organise fund raising events such as the Christmas Fayre, summer barbecue and leavers’ disco for all children.
