Registration/Payment Process for Trips & Educational Visits
Local Trips/Educational Visits
When launching a trip/visit, an information letter will be sent via School Post to the relevant students. Parents and Carers will be asked to give consent via SchoolPost or ParentPay and make a deposit or full payment. You will be asked to provide an emergency contact name and number for the duration of the trip/visit and provide any relevant medical conditions/allergies your child may have.
When launching an international trip, an information letter will be sent via School Post to the relevant students. To register your child for a place on an international trip, you will need to complete an online ‘registration of interest’ form which you will find at the bottom of the School Post or in ParentPay. You will be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit on ParentPay to secure your interest in the trip for your child.
Places on some trips are limited. If a trip is oversubscribed, places will be randomly allocated. Should your child not be successful in gaining a place, the deposit you paid will be refunded to you. Once the list of pupils is final and the trip closed for international trips you will be contacted for the information required to finalise the necessary bookings (e.g. passport, health card, enhanced consent and medical information).
Cambourne Village College are not able to offer advice on or acquire visas on behalf of your child. Cambourne Village College will provide any required documentation they hold to support a visa application.
Cambourne Village College makes available subsidies to help towards the cost of trips for those pupils who, because of financial hardship, would otherwise be unable to attend. Pupils who are in receipt of Free School Meals or receive Pupil Premium, are eligible for such funding. We regret we are no longer able to offer funding for students who are not in receipt of Pupil Premium funding. If you would like to apply for financial assistance, please contact Mrs Ecclestone at firstname.lastname@example.org. A key element to any successful application will be the positive contribution made by the pupil to life at Cambourne Village College.
The school insurance policy covers pupils for medical, personal accident, and personal effects and money. Further details are available from the College on request.
Parents should note that participation in extra-curricular activities is a privilege which is offered to pupils who consistently meet our Respect Values; students who do not meet high expectations of behaviour may not be offered the opportunity to take part in such events.
If a pupil is removed from a trip by parents/carers, after payment has been made, the school will keep the deposit and decide on the repayment of any further monies. All refunds are subject to costs incurred. Tickets such as theatre tickets, flights, hostels, hotels are purchased in advance and are subject to the supplier’s terms and conditions; unless another pupil can take the place of your child it is not always possible to provide you with a full refund.
The school reserves the right to remove a pupil from a trip or visit at any point before the visit takes place if the pupil is not meeting the school’s Respect Values and/or Behaviour policies. In this case, the deposit paid by the parents/carers will be kept by the school and the refund of any further monies would depend on whether the place can be filled by another pupil.
Cambourne Village College does not profit from educational visits or trips. In the event a trip is under budget by £5 or more the payer will be refunded via ParentPay.
A list of trips which may be offered to each year group are shown on each year group page. This has been done at parents' request to help with budgeting; however this is only a guideline, the approximate costs are subject to increases.
