Educational Visits & Enrichment Activities

Educational Visits

At Garfield Primary School, we aim to provide our children with learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom. Educational visits including specialist workshops are embedded across the curriculum to ensure all pupils have opportunities to extend their learning and where possible, provide children with first-hand experiences. This enables children to make sense of the wider world and enhance their learning.

Parental Permission

Educational visits and trips are part of the school curriculum and are carefully planned to support the learning of your child.  On entry to the school, you are asked to sign a form allowing your child to visit local places of interest where no transport will be required. For visits further afield, you will be asked to sign and return a permission slip.

Educational Visits Overview

We ensure children have experienced a broad range of visits to museums, galleries, places of worship and visits to the local area. We aim to provide children with rich cultural and historical opportunities found in London and beyond.

Below is a list of core visits for each year group. Subject leaders are always seeking new opportunities to further enhance learning and may plan for new experiences across different year groups and update the overview accordingly.
