Littlegreen Academy will be starting a programme of residential visits in 2019-20. Solent Academies Trust positively encourages pupils from Year 5/6 upwards to access at least one Residential Visit each year. The benefits to the pupils are wide ranging with positive impact on their personal development, their self-esteem and their learning. They offer opportunities that they may not otherwise have. They are planned to meet the wide ranging interests and needs of our pupils and are exciting and fun. We focus on engagement and team building, encouraging pupils to be as independent as possible and to take on a sense of personal responsibility. Even the ‘down time’ at the end of the day when they relax and meet with their friends is very important and helps them to build positive relationships.
The visits will have a focus on outdoor adventurous activities, connecting with the outdoor world as well as developing health and fitness.
