Trips at Tuxford Academy

 

Staff organise and lead a full range of educational visits and trips throughout the year both at home and abroad.    
 
To reserve a place on a trip for your son/daughter you will be asked to complete and return a Medical Consent Form and return together with a payment or deposit to the Trips Office. Cheques are to be made payable to ‘Diverse Academies Trust’.   
 
If there are a limited number of places on any trip and in the event that the trip is oversubscribed, the selection process will be by the drawing of names after the closing date on the trip letter and a reserve list will be put in place. Students who are unsuccessful will have their payment returned.   
 
Contributions from parents and carers are always voluntary, but the Academy reserves the right to cancel any trip where there is insufficient funding to allow it to take place.   
 
If you are in receipt of certain benefits; as listed on our Charging and Remission Policy, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Academy towards the cost of this trip. Enquiries regarding possible financial assistance should be directed to: Mr Lynch, Vice Principal, or Email the Finance Department finance@tuxford-ac.org.uk. The Academy will require original documentation showing current evidence of any income/ benefits being received (e.g. all pages of HMRC statement/Income Support letter).  
 
The Academy’s behaviour policy applies to all trips run by the Academy during the duration of the trip. Please note that the Academy reserves the right to refuse trip applications from students where the trip leader considers that the safety of staff or students may be compromised by their inclusion. Poor behaviour records after applications have been accepted may also result in exclusions from present and future trips.   
 
Please feel free to contact the Trip Leader or the Trips office for any trip administration queries  tripsadmin@tuxford-ac.org.uk.
