Dear Parent/Carer,

RE: YEAR 10 G.C.S.E. GEOGRAPHY FIELDWORK VISIT – CARDING MILL VALLEY, SHROPSHIRE 

As part of the G.C.S.E. Geography course, it is a compulsory requirement of the course to complete a fieldwork component. We will be completing our coursework by taking a series of measurements using a small stream in Carding Mill Valley, Shropshire. The trip will be run by myself and a Geography specialist from the National Trust who look after the area.

The field trip will take place on FRIDAY 10TH JULY. We will leave at 8.40, so please ensure that your child is at school for 8.20am, and we will endeavour to return for between 3.30 - 4pm. Should we run late, we will notify the school. 

Pupils will need to bring the following things with them:
  • A packed lunch, including a drink which is can be resealed as we will be doing a lot of walking, 
  • Equipment to learn – pen, pencil and ruler, 
  • Camera – if possible. 
  • Sensible clothing and footwear, (I have advised pupils that jeans are not appropriate as we will be measuring a stream – they can bring a change of clothing which can be left on the coach at their own risk.) 
  • Waterproof coat. 
  • Any required medication 
As we are representing the school and to ensure the safety of and the enjoyment for the pupils I do expect the highest standards from all of our pupils, including being respectful to the centre staff and other visitors to the area, impeccable manners and good behaviour.

The National Trust have completed a full risk assessment of the location and the work students will do. It is expected that the students will work under their direction and follow any safety instructions that are given at all times.

We would ask for a contribution of £5.00 per pupil to help cover costs.

Thank you for your support, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please can you sign and return the slip below to the school office, promptly.

Yours faithfully,
Mrs. E. Sheard
