Here at Vernham Dean Gillum’s Church of England Primary, we are committed to providing high quality school experiences and recognise that there are many benefits to children participating in residential trips. These trips help children to build confidence in approaching new activities and living away from home. Even during a short stay there are many skills to be gained including: improved team work, enhanced relationships and community spirit, all of which are transferable skills into the classroom to assist with learning.
Children at our school participate in two residentials, one in Year 5 and one in Year 6. Activities vary from year to year but always include activities that support our school’s Christian and Learning Values.
