2015 Year 6 Activity Week

 

Following a very successful trip to PGL by our current class 6, we have booked again for the next academic year.  At the bottom of this page you will find all the associated documents.

 The PGL centre will also allow us to meet the requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum that states:

“Pupils should be taught to … take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team.”

The dates are Monday 28th September – Friday 2nd October 2015.

The centre is a PGL site called Windmill Hill near Hailsham. The range of activities on offer include climbing, abseiling, canoeing, raft building, zipwire and team building to name a few! A sample itinerary is on the reverse of this letter. The centre, accommodation, instructors, meals and activities are all outstanding. If you would like to know more about the centre please speak to myself or visit www.pgl.co.uk and navigate to the ‘Windmill Hill’ area. There are photos from this years trip in the class 6 area of the website.

The cost of the trip is £289 per pupil which includes travel, instructor led activities from 9am to 9pm and all meals.

To ensure your child’s place, please complete the attached consent form and return this, along with a non-refundable deposit of £40.

Please can this be completed by 24th October. You will then be issued with a payment card.

Please can we request that we then receive the remaining payments by the following dates:

 

£60 by 30th January

£100 by 1st May

£89 by 26th June

I would like to tell you that those families in receipt of income support, job seekers allowance, Child Tax Credit (provided the parent is not entitled to Working Tax Credit), income related employment and support allowance or the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit may only be charged for some elements of the trip but can be asked to make a voluntary contribution for the balance.  If you would like to request financial support, please write to me in complete confidence, as soon as possible, and by 24th October at the latest.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Mr R Garratt
