At Leavening Community Primary School we actively encourage ‘learning away from school’ and one of the ways we do this is through our fantastic residential visits.

Here at Leavening we are proud of the fact that we allow all children from Year 2 upwards to take part in a residential visit each year.

We believe that residential visits can be an empowering and life-changing experience for children. The benefits of taking children out of their comfort zone (home/school environment) on a residential visit are immeasurable.

The children get to take part in outdoor activities which can help develop self-esteem, responsibility, problem-solving skills, teamwork, independence, tolerance, social skills and, of course, physical health.

The children have the opportunity of improving their teamwork skills and in some cases this time away from their families boosts self-confidence and encourages self-organisation skills.

These are vital life skills that will be needed as they go to secondary school and for life beyond.
