Educational Visits

At Sheriff Hutton Primary School we believe that educational visits benefit our children in many ways, and can be inspiring, positive experiences that not only enhance learning and understanding, but also support children’s social and personal development.

Our educational visits can:

  • Reinforce classroom learning.
  • Increase motivation and engagement
  • Improve understanding by being ‘hands-on’.
  • Develop problem-solving, creativity, critical thinking, teamwork and communication skills.
  • Engage different types of learners.
  • Support children with SEND.
  • Experience new environments.
  • Provide fun and exciting learning opportunities.

Children in all classes participate in learning beyond the classroom, the visits are carefully planned to support our curriculum aims whilst ensuring the children are safe. All our visits are planned and organised in line with North Yorkshire’s guidance and are submitted to the Evolve management system for approval. All visits are fully inclusive and adaptations are made where necessary to ensure the involvement of all of our children.

Our Education Visits Co-ordinator (EVC) is Jon Fewlass.

Our visits progress from very structured excursions in EYFS and Key Stage 1, such walks around the village to residential visits in Year 6, such as Bewerley Park and Sweden.
