COVID-19: update for schools planning educational visits

Thumbnail

Summary

In line with the current Government roadmap out of lockdown, guidance has been published for schools looking to plan and deliver educational visits.

Main News Story

The current position allows for schools to undertake trips away from the school during the day, but we continue to wait for guidance on whether overnight residential visits can resume. It is hoped that this will commence on the 17 May, but we are still awaiting Government guidance on how residential providers can accommodate schools.

Where educational visits are planned, please continue to follow your normal application and approval process using the EEC website. In the meantime, please find attached a detailed document providing the current position for educational visits, including ideas on how to provide outdoor learning opportunities for pupils. For more information, please contact OEA@somerset.gov.uk.
