Y6 Edale 2019
15th June, 2018.
Dear Parents / Carer,
Year 6 Residential – Edale 2019
For the last eight years, Year Six children have been invited to take part in a highly successful residential trip, staying at Edale YHA. The intention has been to give the children an experience together in the ‘great outdoors’. It has certainly been a big success, with around 800 children having attended to date.
The package we have booked includes a range of outdoor activities, abseiling/high ropes, canoeing/raft building, and weaseling/caving. All the activities are led by staff qualified to NGB standards. All meals during the visit, and transport to and from Edale, are included in the cost. School staff accompany the children at all times. Edale YHA is a large venue, capable of accommodating all our Year 6 pupils and we want to take every pupil.
We have provisionally booked places for all our Year 6 children for 2019. We will leave school at 1pm on Wednesday 3rd July, returning to Sheffield at approximately 3pm on Friday 5th July.
The residential element of the trip means that there is a charge for board and lodging. The approximate total cost per pupil will be £185. The Y6 children will be encouraged to fundraise, reducing the cost per head. We want all the pupils to attend. If cost or any other factor is a barrier to participation please contact us to discuss how we might help.
If you would like your child to attend the Edale residential 2019, we will require an initial deposit of £40, via ‘Squid’ as soon as possible, and no later than Monday 2nd July 2018. This will confirm a place and allow us to judge the viability of the planned trip. Parents may then pay in instalments if they wish, with the balance needing to be settled by Thursday 18th April 2019.
School has a Charging and Remissions Policy, available from our school website or on request from the school office. If you feel you may be entitled to the remission of some of the charges for this visit please contact the school office.
More details will follow this letter, and an information session for parents will be held nearer the time of the trip.
Please complete and return the declaration on the back of this letter.
