Safely managed educational visits with distinct outcomes are a vital part of a comprehensive and balanced curriculum. They provide an opportunity to extend the learning of students, including an enhancement of their understanding of themselves, others, and the world around them. They can be a catalyst for improved personal performance, promote a lifetime interest and, in some cases, lead to eventual career choices.
As a school, we use the KCC EVOLVE system to administer school visits and it is therefore our primary means of communicating information to parents and guardians.
There are many advantages of using EVOLVE:
- It enables you to be confident that information about potential visits is received immediately it is sent
- Consent forms can be read, completed and submitted electronically and not lost in school bags
- A copy of the completed consent form will be emailed to you
- It is environmentally friendly
Should your child be invited to participate in a school visit, you will receive a communication from Evolvekentvisits which will include full details on an attachment. This will be a secure encrypted link via the email address you have supplied to the school, and you will be prompted to complete the consent form online. Should you encounter any problems, there is a parent guide on the Evolve website.
