Robinwood Trip Details

Dear parent/carer,

In preparation for this year’s Robinwood trip we are having an information evening on Monday 1st October at 5.30pm. Here you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and collect forms and luggage labels. I have included some of the trip details in this letter.

Leaving time:

You will need to be at school at the normal time with a planned leaving time of 9.00am – 9.15am on the 9th November.  You will be given a luggage label which must be attached to the one piece of luggage permitted for the trip. A small bag or backpack is also allowed on the coach. Lunch will be provided by Robinwood so there is no need to take lots of food onto the bus although a piece of fruit and a water bottle is allowed. Please make sure any travel sickness pills are taken before arriving at school. ALL medication, except inhalers, must be handed to a member of staff on arrival at school clearly named and with specific instructions on administration.  Children should keep their inhalers with them, not packed in their luggage.

What to bring:

You will receive a clothing list. Robinwood staff will wash and dry clothes overnight so your child will always have access to clean dry clothes in the morning. This may help you decide on the quantity of clothing to pack. Please label all items of clothing with the child’s name.

Please remember that expensive toys must not be brought on the trip including mobile phones. Cameras are not allowed at Robinwood due to safeguarding, but school staff will take photos which will be shared on our return.

Spending money:

Please discuss with your child an appropriate amount of money to spend at the tuck shop.  We recommend no more than £5.00.

Phoning home:

There is very limited mobile phone reception at the centre.  Children will not be allowed to phone home from the centre. If there are any problems we will contact you. However if an emergency arises at home and you need to make contact with Robinwood, Mrs Earnshaw, who is staying behind, can be reached on 07908 614337.  She will then contact the centre with the necessary information and co-ordinate any arrangements that need to be made.

Personal Information forms:

The information on these forms ensures we have up to date contact details, should the need arise, and current health advice.


Healthy and Safety of everyone involved in our Robinwood trip is of paramount importance. Therefore children must demonstrate they can follow instructions and respect all others, at all times. As a result we reserve the right to withdraw a child from this visit if behaviour is below an acceptable standard.

Coming home:

We will be aiming to return to school at approximately 3.30pm on Sunday 11th November.  This can only be an estimate, of course, due to the unexpected delays which can occur. If this happens you will be notified by the school text messaging service.

We are looking forward to an excellent weekend at Robinwood this year.  If you have any further questions, please contact school.

Yours sincerely,

Miss J. Barker
