I wanted to inform you of an accident that happened on Monday evening while the children were out walking near Dancing Ledge. One of our pupils unfortunately tripped and fell over and as a precaution was airlifted to hospital. She has suffered a broken wrist and received stitches for a head wound but is otherwise doing well. Having spoken to both school staff present at the scene , the instructor, Duty Manager and Directors of Land & Wave, I am confident that policy procedure was followed and have organised a member of our Senior Management team to visit the site today to follow-up enquiries.
We are continuing with the trip as planned and the children are enjoying a variety of activities today including kayaking, coast steering and archery. As we don’t allow children to take their mobile phones on school trips as a way of maximising the experience of being away I wanted to write to you and tell you about the accident and ensure you that everyone is safe and well.
If you have any further questions, please contact the school.
