Educational Visits

Aims and Objectives for Educational Visits

Our fundamental aim at St. Ambrose RC Primary School is to provide the best possible education for all our pupils. It is the aim of the school to place a high value on diversity, treating every member of the school community as an individual, and meeting the needs of all, taking account of gender, ethnicity, culture, religion, language, sexual orientation, age, ability, disability and social circumstances. In doing this, we aim, therefore, to raise the achievement of all the children in the school.

Educational Visits and Outdoor and Adventurous Activities are an integral part of the children’s education at St. Ambrose. They offer opportunities to enrich the curriculum, enabling the children to have first-hand experience of a wide range of topics and activities. On residential visits especially, there is opportunity to develop social skills which have a long-lasting beneficial effect.

Nature of Educational Visits

The school runs a wide range of Educational Visits. These may include:

  • Walks around the Speke area, including to church, the woods, the shops and sports centre.
  • Half-day visits by coach to places of interest to support the curriculum.
  • Day visits to places of historical, environmental, religious or other interest to support specific curriculum areas.
  • An annual residential visit for children in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6.
