Alfreton Park Community Special School Learning together for personal success
Latest government guidance has today made it clear that schools will not be funded to provide free school meal vouchers or hampers during the holiday period. Therefore, we will not be doing so as is normally the case during holidays. Please keep in touch with Cheryl and Sharon if you need support.

Residential Visits

Residential visits

A residential visit is something which may be offered during your child’s time at school. These may include short stays or longer stays of up to 4/5 nights.


Visits may include trips to Lea Green, CAFT (Children’s Adventure Farm Trust), Thornbridge outdoor centre and many more.


A residential experience can be an extremely valuable learning opportunity, working on self-help skills, team building skills, developing personal skills and allowing them to build positive relationships with their peers.


All residential visits have a charge which covers the cost of accommodation, food and transport. Your child’s class teacher will send out letters in advance if there is a residential visit coming up. Then a parents meeting will be held to inform you of all the relevant information which you might need.
