At Meadowhead we believe firmly that residential holidays are an essential piece of the primary curriculum jigsaw. Look at the page below to see why we think residential visits are important.
We have several residential holidays planned and are planning others so that over the next few years, each year group will have the opportunity to take part each year. Please take a look at the overview below to see the type of residential, which year group and the objectives behind our planning.
Year 4 Residential Visit to Coniston Waters
Initial preparations are being made to take 27 Year 4 children to Coniston Waters in the lake District.
If sufficient number of children are interested, the visit will take place on Wednesday 12th June until Friday 14th June (3 days, 2 nights).
There are still a few places available and the details are in the parents letter below.
Please find the initial letter for parents below.
France 2019 - Confirmed
The aim of this residential is to give children the opportunity to experience the culture of another country first hand. We also want to support and enhance the learning of French that happens in school.
1st April to 5 April (inclusive)
32 children have signed up to take part in the above cultural residential visit.
If you haven't already signed up, there are still a few places left. Contact Mrs Chadwick if you have any general questions about the residential or about payments.

Year 3 'Sleep Over'
Friday 6th July 2018
The aim of this residential was to develop independence and self-confidence. The sleep over was a huge success where children became more confident and wanted to independent. They could stop talking about it before and afterwards. They will certainly not hesitate to stay away from home in the future.
Waddow Hall (Year 5/6)
Monday 25th June to Friday 29th June 2018 (inclusive)
The aim of this residential was to challenge children to try things outside their comfort zone and to manage their own risk taking.
42 children, a mix of Year 5 and Year 6, took part in a camping residential based at the picturesque Waddow Hall Girl Guide camp just outside Whalley. Sporting NRG were the lead instructors, whilst some activities were led by instructors from Waddow Hall.how
It was really rewarding to see children move outside their comfort zone and challenge themselves. Camping was a completely new venture for most of the children (and for some of the staff!). The residential was a huge success. We achieved all the objectives of the residential and would certainly recommend other schools trying it out with the support of Sporting NRG.
Look at the photographs below and see for yourselves the sheer enjoyment on the bfaces of some of the children who took part.
Laches Wood 2017
Another very successful residential took place on:
Monday 10th July to Friday 14th July inclusive.
Thank you to all the Year 5 & children who came on the residential. We would like to thank each and every one of you for your positive attitude, super behaviour and for trying all the activities, some of which you found extremely challenging. Well done to all of you. It was a pleasure to to take such a great bunch of children on this residential.
