Y5 change of visit


As you are no doubt aware through television and newspaper reports there have been several issues raised about South Lakeland Zoo. Although it has now been handed over to Cumbria Zoo Company and is still open at the moment to avoid any uncertainty we have rearranged the visit to Blackpool Zoo.

The date will remain the same but the coach will now be leaving at 9:00 a.m. so children will need to be in school for registration at 8:45a.m.


We are asking parents for a contribution of £14:00 to be paid by Friday 19th May. We have subsidised the cost of transport but there is now a significant cost for admission to the zoo. Payment can be made in installments or in one. Please send cash in an envelope clearly marked with your child’s name and class on. Staff are unable to accept loose cash on the playground. Payment must be made by Friday 19th May.

Further information regarding the day will be sent home nearer the date.

Please reiterate to your child the need to behave sensibly on visits outside of school and I would be grateful if you could let he/she know, that if we have any concerns over behaviour issues in school, the invitation to attend the above visit will be withdrawn from individuals.

We do not require you to complete any further paperwork for your child to attend this visit as we are able to use the information given on the previous form 4b. Should any medical details or contact details change before your child attends the visit please ensure you update the records held at the school office.
