 Visits and Visitors


Come and see us here at Darley!

At Darley we value the importance of welcoming visitors to our school.  Not only do we get to show off our school and the work that we do to visitors but we also learn from what they have to tell us.  Recent visitors have been Liz Roodhouse who spoke to us about becoming a Fair Trade School, other child ambassadors from our HARTS cluster and Jo York who came and spent a day with us so we could learn about art.

We also welcome half termly visits from our local clergy; Alistair Fernley is a  familiar face to our children. We also have some somewhat stranger visitors such as 'Power Down Pete' and 'Herbie the Healthy Carrot'.  Visits by the Fire and Rescue Service as well as visits from our local police officers all enhance our learning.

School hosts annual curriculum evenings as well as frequent writing workshops for parents.  Here, parents can find out how their children learn and in which ways they can support their child's learning. 

 Educational Visits

Whitby Abbey - part of our Robin Hoods Bay TripAs well as day excursions and educational visits our older children also take part in residential trips.  We alternate between Marrick Priory Outdoor Education Centre in Swaledale and Robin Hoods Bay on the North Yorkshire Coast.  Both these amazing settings give our young learners the opportunity to find out so much more about themselves and each other in a safe and responsible setting.  As much as we enjoy being in school we cannot underestimate the value of learning outside of the classroom.  All our children and staff simply love going on trips coming back to school energised and raring to go again!
