Educational Trips and Visits

 

Families may find it helpful to know the following in the light of recent distressing terrorist activities in Paris and Brussels:

Robert May’s School subscribes to Hampshire County Council “Evolve” outdoor trips and visits policies and procedures.

Recent advice and guidance from “Evolve” regarding educational visits to major venues in the UK has been reviewed and is incorporated into all our travel plans.

Planned visits to Europe over the next 3 months will now be reviewed very carefully. We will be studying the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice and updates. We will be talking with our insurers and with travel operators to gain as much information as we can in order to make wise decisions. This will be done in consultation with students and their families in the weeks and months ahead. If any changes to existing plans need to be made we will endeavour to communicate with families as rapidly as possible. I am sure you will appreciate that the personal safety of all our students and staff is our greatest concern at this time.
