Safely managed educational visits with a clear purpose are an indispensable part of a broad and balanced curriculum and a vibrant part of the academies within the Red Kite Learning Trust. They are an opportunity to extend pupils’ learning and enrich their appreciation and understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. They can be the catalyst for improved academic performance, contextual understanding, a lifetime interest or in some cases professional fulfilment. They are to be encouraged.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child. Harrogate Grammar School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Schools and all childcare providers were asked to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable, and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.
