Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Educational visits form an important part of the curriculum.
They provide an opportunity for the children to extend their learning beyond the classroom, making full use of the resources available locally. Parents are informed of the cost of visits made and the school holds a fund raising event to fund the cost of the transport annually. Charges are made in line with the school’s charging and remissions policy. We appreciate the support that parents give in making the voluntary contributions that enable these valuable experiences to take place.
Residential trips are presently organised for Years 5 and 6. We believe they contribute greatly to children’s personal, social and physical development as well as offering curricular benefits. Children with special needs are encouraged to take part in all aspects of school life, including educational visits. However, each child will be considered on an individual basis in order that their needs can be fully met and not compromise the safety of themselves or others. When organising education visits, we plan them with all our children’s needs in mind and are committed to providing an inclusive experience. We see the value of such visits for all children and will work with parents to ensure opportunities for all children.
