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 of our children, we offer a range of educational visits and other activities that enhance and enrich what they learn at school. Each term our pupils have the opportunity to attend an educational visit linked to their curriculum theme.

Here are a few examples:

  • RSPB Coombes Valley Nature Reserve
  • Biddulph Grange Country Park
  • Manchester Museum
  • Chester Zoo
  • Jodrell Bank
  • Chester Roman Visit
  • Churnet Valley Railway
  • MEN Young Voices
  • Year 2 Chasewater Residential
  • Year 4 York Residential
  • Year 6 Holland Residential

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 Rev. Taylor, with our church links. These visits support the personal, social and health education of our children. Here are just a few of the visitors we have welcomed to Mossley CE Primary School in the past.

  • Chris Machin – Dark Ages experience
  • Fiona Cuthill – Dentist
  • Chris Trevor – Stone Ages Experience
  • Bikability
  • Bug Day – Reptile experience
  • Open the Book
  • Tom Makin-Bell – CHAPS (Cheshire Autism Practical Support)

From Year 2 our pupils have the opportunity to take part in residential visits. Our Year 2, pupils are invited to attend an activity residential for one night at Chasewater. In Year 4 the pupils attend a Roman residential for one night in York. In Year 6, our pupils are invited to attend the Holland residential.

The residential visits enable our pupils to take part in outdoor and adventure as part of their curriculum. We undertake these visits only with the agreement of the governing body and the LEA. All specialist activities are undertaken with qualified instructors.
