Reopening Update Message -
As you are probably aware, the government confirmed yesterday that certain year groups in primary schools will soon begin to return to school. To enable this to happen and to ensure the safety and well-being of all pupils and staff, Swale Academies Trust is completing rigorous risk assessments in all schools.
Our school is now preparing the site for wider reopening and ensuring that the right equipment is in place. A phased return of Reception, Years 1 and 6 will start from Monday 8th June. This will be a staggered start with year groups returning over a couple of weeks and detailed information about new arrangements will be shared with parents and carers early next week.

At Regis Manor, we aim to provide as many trips and educational visits as possible.
Educational visits occur regularly and they build on the learning in each topic. By providing real experiences, this allows the children to have a much greater understanding of the subject matter that they are studying. Every year group aims to provide at least one educational visit per year but there may be more throughout the year.
Trips occur in years 2 and 6 as a reward for undertaking SATS tests and they have included visits to Chessington and Thorpe Park.
Wingham Wildlife Park (YR)
Leeds Castle (Y1)
Chessington World of Adventures (Y2)
Chatham Historical Dockyard (Y3 & 4)
DS Smith (Y5 & 6)
Thorpe Park (Y6)
RAF Museum Manston
Court Hall Museum (Milton)
British Open (Sandwich)
The cost to parents/carers for our trips and visits varies. However, all of the main trips occurring this year will cost between £15 and £30. The majority of this cost is attributed to transport costs and is unavoidable due to the number of children who attend and the location of many of our visits.
While all payments for school trips/educational visits are voluntary, they are quite expensive for schools to run if contributions are not received. This may mean that a trip has to be cancelled as the school has to replace any missing payments from its own year group budgets.
