"We all learnt a great deal about Farming - it helped the children to understand the idea of Farming more. A real hands on experience!"

Literature & Teacher Pre-Visits

When a new school books in it is always advisable that the teachers make a pre-visit to the farm in advance of the day. This is a good opportunity to discuss activities, risk assessments, tour the farm and lunching facilities and get an idea of how long it will take the coach to get here on the day of the visit. A good time to do this is normally after the school day. No one is available at weekends for pre-visits. There is no need for new school staff on existing visits to book a pre-visit to the farm. After the school has booked you will receive a booking confirmation and invoice, a timetable of the day, the relevant risk assessments and where applicable some worksheets for activities (school staff may copy these and use as they feel would work best with their students). There is also a medical form (that should be returned before or on the day of the visit), some information on planning your visit and in the case of river visits health & safety procedures. These last three can also be found below as PDF files
