School Trips

Bawdsey Manor 2019

Children at Newlands Spring Primary and Nursery School are given the opportunity to learn outside the classroom. We believe that these educational visits enhance the school curriculum.

In the academic year 2017/2018 visits have included

  • Haningfield (wildlife Trust) in Foundation Stage
  • Marsh Farm and Hedingham Castle in Year 1
  • Colchester Castle and Sealife Centre (Southend) in Year 2
  • Colchester Zoo in Year 4
  • France and Harlow Activity Centre in Year 5
  • PGL Osmington in Year 6
  • Barbican (Barnados concert) for the Choir

Each year our Year 6 children attend a week's residential and these are very popular with both the children and staff.  Previous residentials have been held at the following PGL centres - Osmington Bay in Dorset, Little Canada on the Isle of Wight and Barton Hall in Devon.  We strongly encourage all our parents to allow their child to attend this most valuable event.

Parents are asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of the visits, covering the cost of visits, travel and admission charges. Without such contribution educational visits would not be financially viable. However, the school is keen that no child misses a visit due to their parent's inability to play. Should this be a concern parents can contact the Business Manager or Pastoral Manager to discuss this. All conversations will be dealt with in confidence.

In addition to arranging educational visits, the school regularly hosts visiting artists, musicians and authors who perform to the children and lead workshops.
