DfE Updates Advice on UK School Trips

On Friday we finally received the news that teachers, students and school tour operators have been waiting for – UK school trips are on!

It’s time to start planning!

The Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that, as long as we continue to meet the conditions for unlocking as set out by the government’s roadmap, educational day trips should be able to resume from the 12th April.

And domestic residential educational visits should then be able to resume from 17th May.

Perhaps more importantly for teachers travelling with Halsbury, the DfE is now permitting schools to start planning these trips, although schools are being advised not to enter into any new financial or contractual commitments at this stage.

Good news for those booking with Halsbury

That’s good news for those booking with Halsbury because our Covid Guarantee means that even if you do book your school trip with us, you won’t be making any financial commitment.

If it gets to within 30 days of your school trip and restrictions change in a way that will affect your trip, you’ll be entitled to a full refund.

And, up until that point, the option to postpone will remain open to you, if there is any doubt about whether your trip might go ahead.

Plus, we’ve also significantly reduced the deposits required to secure your booking, so parents won’t need to pay so much upfront.

What about school trips abroad?

We should have more news for you in April regarding school trips abroad, so keep checking here and on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.  

I remember my own school trips with such fond memories – and I know how important it is for children to go on educational visits to learn and laugh with their friends. These trips are a key step in returning to normality for a lot of children and are so important for children’s development and wellbeing. Gavin Williamson, Education Secretary
