Silverline Private School places a high value on both local and international educational trips, tours and fieldwork and believes that safely managed visits, with a clear purpose, play an essential part in meeting the school mission of providing a first-class education. Visits also play an important role in allowing the school to meet its aim of developing the confidence of our students to take appropriate risks and its aim of encouraging them to become responsible citizens.

Silverline ensures that all students can participate, and the needs of students with SEND are taken into account during the planning of any trip.

The safety of students on school trips is of paramount importance. The school accepts that trips cannot be completely without risk but requires staff who lead and accompany the students to assess the risks that occur and to take all reasonable precautions to protect staff and students’ health, safety and welfare.
