13. How will my child be included in activities outside of the classroom, including trips?
At St Mary’s Fields we try hard to plan trips and visits which are inclusive for all our children. We are happy to take buggies and wheelchairs to both local and more distant venues on a bus. We always check that the venue has a disabled toilet and take the necessary resources with us.
If in any doubt we will ask for your opinion about the suitability of the journey and take our lead from you as your child’s parent.
We have always taken children with physical disabilities to the swimming pool and ensured that a member of staff is in the water to support them alongside the other children.
If your child struggles to follow instructions when in the street or in an open environment, we will make sure that there is a responsible adult to keep them safe.
