IMPORTANT: School trips to France - Update from Health and Safety team

18 Nov 2015

Update from Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO)

As part of the national state of emergency, the French Ministry of Education has cancelled all school trips within France by French schools until Sunday 22 November. This includes excursions to cultural sites (theatres, museums, etc) and travel by school groups on public transport. These cancellations don’t specifically include foreign school parties, but the French Ministry of Education has advised foreign school groups to avoid travelling to France for the time being.

If you’re planning a trip to France then please check the latest FCO advice at https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice before progressing further.

Guidance on Educational Visits can be found on the Health and Safety section of the Schools Website while Clive Atkins, our Outdoor Education Adviser, can be contacted at clive.atkins@btopenworld.com if you have questions regarding any aspect of educational visits or activities.
