Dear parents / carers
As we approach the High Borrans trip in May, we would like to share some further information with you about the trip.
High Borrans permission form
Your child will bring home a permission form with them tonight entitled ‘High Borrans Dietary, Medical & Contact Information Form – Under 18’s’. This form needs to be completed and returned to school no later than Friday 6th May. This is a paper form rather than our usual electronic format as requested by High Borrans.
If your child already has medication in school, we will take this with us on the trip. If your child requires any additional medication on the trip you should provide this to school no later than Friday 20th May. Please come to the school office with the medication and complete a permission form allowing us to administer the medication. All medication must be in its original container / box. This includes any travel sickness medication. For further information, see our Managing Medication Policy.
Can we remind parents that all medication your child may need MUST be given to school and a form completed allowing us to administer the medication. Without this paperwork we would be unable to administer any medication under current legislation.
Children will be required to bring a packed bag containing everything they need for their High Borrans adventure! To see the recommended kit list, please click here. Children should not bring their phone or any other electronics as the focus of this visit is outdoor activity and team building.
6L – Children will need to arrive in school at 8:30am on Monday 23rd May for prompt departure at 9:10am. Please bring your child to the community room entrance with their belongings. Children will register with their class at the normal time. We estimate that children will arrive back in school by approximately 4.30pm on Wednesday 25th May. Please collect your child from the KS2 yard. We will text you on the day to give you a more accurate arrival time.

Staff in school will be speaking to children in the coming days about bedroom arrangements for the trip. Rooms come in different capacities, sleeping from four to six children. Children will be asked which children they would like to share with and we will do our utmost to accommodate their choices to ensure every child has at least one friend in their room.
If you have any further questions about the visit, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Mr Denton and Mrs Henderson
