What the Petitions Committee is doing

Petition Change DfE school guidance to allow overnight educational visits.

DfE to immediately allow overnight education trips for schools, subject to them risk assessing the trip whilst following the government advice in place and making informed decisions based on the actual venues. To allow pupils to attend in the same groups they already have contact with in school.

More details

We believe current DfE guidance puts both the well being of pupils and the economic stability of the outdoor education sector into peril. There is already current government guidance on accommodation, travel and activities that would allow overnight educational visits to happen in a Covid secure and professionally managed environment. Children have missed enough of their education and this change would be invaluable in re-engaging pupils back into education whilst nurturing their well being and mental health.
