The Viking Man will arrive at 9.00 a.m. and will be carrying out a workshop for approximately 1.5 hours. The rest of the day we be carrying out other Viking activities. No food will be involved. Members of staff from Highfield School will also be with the children for the duration of the day.

Please understand that while the school staff in charge of the party will take all reasonable care of the children, they cannot necessarily be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by your child arising during a school activity.

The school is insured against its legal liability to pay compensation should it be held responsible for causing an injury to your child whilst in the care of staff. The school has not arranged any additional insurance in respect of the visit e.g. personal accident. Should you be concerned about this area of risk, you are advised to make your own arrangements.

Please complete the consent form that was sent out recently and return it to your child’s class teacher by Thursday 9th February 2016.
