Educational Visits

Benfield School encourages students to participate in trips to enhance and improve their education. 
 
Your child will be offered the chance to take part in a wide range of excursions.
 
Some of these trips will be wholly subsidised by the school, but some may incur a charge.
 
You will be notified in advance of all of the details of the trip, including any cost.  Written parental consent will not be requested from you for the majority of off-site activities offered by the school (e.g. year group visits to local amenities) as these are part of the school’s curriculum and usually take place during the normal school day.
 
For other visits (including residential trips that take place during the holidays or a weekend), adventure activities at any time or off-site sporting fixtures outside of the school day, we require an annual trip consent form to be completed and returned otherwise your child will not be able to take part. 
 
Payments can be made by sending cash or cheque (made payable to Benfield School) into school, or using our online payment system, Parentpay.  Please contact the school office if you require more details on the Parentpay system.
