Medication

If you know your child requires travel sickness pills (for the coach), please see a member of staff who will be available outside the classroom on the Monday morning we depart, or if you can’t be there on the day please send with your child along with a signed note.

All other medicines must be in a see-through bag with the child’s name clearly marked, with doctor’s/pharmacy instructions, and handed to a member of staff in the morning.

Please complete the medical and contact forms and hand these to your child. We will take these with us.

Travel Arrangements

On Monday 5th November the children are to arrive at school (not in school uniform, but in activity clothes) for the normal time of 8.45am. The coach will arrive around 12.45pm and we will leave at around 1.00pm having eaten as normal at school. (If your child usually brings a packed lunch for school then ensure they bring one as normal in their rucksack.)

If you wish to wave us off, the coach will be on the road inside the gates.

On Friday we will leave PGL around mid-day and are scheduled to be back for a normal school finish. If we are delayed due to traffic we will update via the Twitter feed accessible through the Class 6 blog.

Equipment List

As a rule of thumb: Do not let your child bring anything that you would mind being ruined. Everything they wear outside will get muddy and wet.

Also, please bear in mind your child will be responsible for carrying his/her suitcase to and from the coach.

Items that are essential and to which I would like to draw particular attention are:
• Black sacks (for wet clothes)
• Sleeping bag and 1 pillow
• Waterproof jacket (waterproof trousers are optional, but recommended) 
• Hat, scarf and a pair of gloves

Other Information

Part of the School Journey experience is that, for many, it will be the first time away from home. There will not be an opportunity for children to ring home. Obviously, in the unlikely event of an emergency, we will contact you immediately.
