School Trips

Here are some of the trips and visits which children at Ashbury Meadow Primary School took part in last year:

All trips and visitors are planned to support and enhance learning within our curriculum and as such, are not one off events. They are carefully planned as part of a unit of work and are an effective way of supporting the development of pupils' cultural capital.
