Educational Visits

We believe in providing our pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes their spiritual, moral, cultural and physical development, and prepares them for the opportunities and experiences of adult life. To enrich the curriculum for our children, we offer a range of educational visits and other activities that enhance and enrich what they learn in school. Each Term our pupils have the opportunity to attend an educational visit linked to their curriculum theme.
Here are a few examples:

  • Fleetwood Museum
  • Lancaster Judges Lodgings
  • Houses of Parliament, London
  • Dewlay Cheese Factory
  • Tate Modern Art Gallery
  • Manchester Palace Theatre
  • Kendal Quaker Tapestry
  • Liverpool
  • South Lakes Animal Park
  • Manchester Aviation Centre
  • Carnforth to Grange Train Journey
  • Beatrix Potter Museum

All educational visits and activities support and enrich the work we do in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. We also have regular visits from our neighbourhood police officer and health and safety workers. These visits support the personal, social and health education of our children. Here are just a few of the visitors we have welcomed to Tatham Fells in the past.

  • Loon Music Theatre Workshop
  • BEEcycle Workshop
  • African Sculpture Day
  • ZOOlab
  • Buddhist Centre
  • Arty Fact Theatre Company
  • Kids with Cameras
  • Education Life Bus
  • Fire Safety Team
  • Burnley Youth Theatre

From Year 3, our pupils have the opportunity to take part in residential visits. Our Year 3 and 4 pupils are invited to attend an activity residential  at Borwick Hall  each year. In Year 5 and Year 6, our pupils are invited to attend the Isle of Man residential visit to the Venture Activity centre. The residential visits enable our pupils to take part in outdoor and adventure activities as part of their PE curriculum. We undertake these visits only with agreement of the governing body and the LEA. All specialist activities are undertaken with qualified instructors.
