School Trips and Visits
Trips and visits are an important part of our curriculum. We are so lucky to be so close to Crewe town centre and its history.
On entry to the school, parents are asked to give blanket permission for their children to be involved in local walking trips which will include the local library, St Peter's church and the Cumberland sports arena. When trips are further afield, parents will be asked for permission for their child to travel by coach. When transport costs or entry fees are involved, parents will be asked to contribute to the cost of the trip as well as give permission for their child to take part.
We want all children to be able to take part in these valuable experiences and if there are reasons why a parent may not be able to meet the full contribution, please speak, in confidence, to the trip organiser or, if preferred, Mrs Wootton, our school bursar.
Recent trips have included:
- Crewe Railway Station
- Delamere Forest
- Tatton Park
- Roman Museum, Chester
- Reaseheath Zoo
- Knowsley safari park
- The Science Museum
- Theatres, including Crewe Lyceum
Occasionally, additional adults are required to accompany trips. On these occasions teachers will ask for volunteers.
As any parent of a Scout or Brownie will know, residential trips do wonders for a child’s confidence, resilience and independence.
At Brierley we aim to build up confidence through residential trips:
Each year we take our Year 6 children on a two night, three day residential. This year we went to Colomendy, Wales. The children enjoyed activities such as: zipwire, caving and archery. They had a fabulous time!
Our Year 4s took part in the first Year 4 residential trip in June 2022. We have taken our Year 6s on a 2-night residential for many years now, but it was felt that we should offer a shorter residential lower down the school for our pupils to enjoy. The children thorouhgly enjoyed this trip and behaved brilliantly.
