We are considering organising an outward bounds residential at Peat Rigg in the North York Moors National Park and would like to know whether you would be interested in your child attending. If you would like to have a look at Peat Rigg click the link http://www.peatrigg.co.uk/
The dates we would be looking at should the residential go ahead would be between the 7th-10th May 2012 and for Key Stage 3 students in classes 7,8 and 9
The staff at Peat Rigg are all fully trained outward bound instructors used to working with children with special educational needs. All the meals, activities and accommodation are provided on site with activities being planned for the whole day including the evening. However as a result of this support the cost for the school is quite high. We will subsidise as much of the trip as possible but would request a voluntary contribution of £100 if you would like your child to attend, this amount can be paid in one lump sum or in smaller instalments over the next few months, whichever is most suitable for yourselves.
If you are interested in your child attending then if you could return the slip at the bottom of the form that was sent home.
If we receive enough positive responses to make the trip viable then I will inform you as soon as possible.
If the trip does go ahead then I will invite you in to school to discuss any individual concerns you may have but in the mean time if you would like any further information then please do not hesitate to be in touch.
