Dear Parents and Carers,
Sponsored Walk to Borough Hill
Here are the details of the arrangements for Thursday.
Children should arrive at school at their usual time. They do not have to wear uniform but they should wear warm, comfortable, practical clothing. We will walk even if it rains so children should wear warm coats, preferably with a hood. If their coat does not have a hood, then a hat would be sensible as well as scarves and gloves. Comfortable, appropriate footwear should be worn – on their return to school in the afternoon they can change into their P.E pumps if necessary. ALL CHILDREN SHOULD BRING A CARRIER BAG WITH THEM TO SIT ON.
Children in Reception, Year One and Year Two as well as older children who are signed up for free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch from Dolce. This will be transported up to Borough Hill and handed out at lunchtime. The other children in Years Three, Four, Five and Six will need to bring in a packed lunch and carry it with them, either in their PE bag which can be carried on their backs or in a small rucksack. They should not bring in lunch boxes. All children will need to bring in a bottle of water in a disposable container.
It is advisable that children have a snack in their pocket e.g. a breakfast bar or packet of raisins.
Volunteers who have kindly agreed to walk with us should arrive at school at 9.45 via the main entrance for a short briefing before we set off.
As with any trip a risk assessment has been completed and all the usual precautions will be in place.
We have arranged for access to toilets at the Icon Centre, midway through the walk and at Arquiva on Borough Hill.
The children will arrive back at school in plenty of time to be collected as usual.
If you have any concerns, then do not hesitate to contact me.
Let’s make a big difference to the lives of children in the UK.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Jacqui Johnson
