Theatre Royal Pantomime Trip

4th December 2019


YEAR 7 & 8 —Wednesday 11th December 2019
Year 5 & 6—Friday 13th December 2019

Just a few reminders as we look forward to our visit to see Beauty and the Beast at the Theatre Royal:

 We hope to be back at school at approximately 5.30pm. It is difficult to be more precise than this as we are unable to foresee any traffic issues we may encounter on our return journey.
 Please ensure that your child knows how they are getting home from school. They must know whether they are being collected from school or walking home alone or with friends. For pupils in Year 5 & 6, please write a note in their diary to help them remember and to assist us at the end of the day.
 If you indicate that you intend to collect your child from school, Year 5 pupils will wait in the
Annexe until you arrive whereas Year 6 pupils will wait to be collected from the school hall. In order to keep all children safe, all pupils in KS2 (whether walking or being collected) must sign out with their teacher before they leave.
 If you come by car to collect your child, please try to avoid blocking Highfield Lane and the entrance into school. Several buses will need access and the children need to be able to safely make their way into school to collect their belongings. It would be fantastic if you could arrange to meet your child at a convenient location near to school, for instance at Prudhoe West car park, rather than everyone trying to make their way to the school entrance which inevitably causes traffic congestion. Please ensure parked cars do not cause an obstruction or stall the flow of traffic in the area. In recent years, cars have blocked Highfield Lane and caused significant disruption meaning the buses have been very late arriving back into school. Your
help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
 Pupils may bring a small bag of sweets and a bottle of water or a carton of juice to enjoy during the performance. No fizzy drinks, energy drinks or crisps are allowed.
 Pupils will not need any money during the visit.
 School uniform must be worn. All pupils need to wear their coat as we may have to wait outside at the end of the performance.
 Please ensure any medication such as travel sickness tablets or inhalers are sent into school as needed.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact school.
