Trips and Visits

Educational visits and Learning off Site provide opportunities which are integral to a rounded educational experience.  Our trip and visit agenda excites, challenges, motivates, and stimulates learners, enabling our young people to discover the world.  Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) actively supports and encourages such activities.  In so doing, SMBC recognises this may involve exposing participants to challenges and risks with which they may not be familiar.  This policy aims to support schools to put arrangements and procedures in place, including health and safety requirements, identify and manage these risks, ensuring a balancing of the risks against the benefits of the activity.
