The school holds a comprehensive travel insurance policy to cover
all overseas school visits. The policy will cover normal benefits
associated with travel insurance including medical, hospital and
repatriation expenses where necessary. If it was necessary to
cancel a visit due to circumstances not covered by the travel
insurance policy, then costs may not be recoverable.
Students will be a member of a group in a foreign country. To be
sure of having an enjoyable time, they must be prepared to make
an effort to get on with the other students and staff who they will
be living with at the centre. Sensible behaviour and consideration is
essential especially with centre staff.
As you are aware, you are representing Kellett, and at all times we
expect the very highest standards. With this in mind, I’d like to take
the opportunity to remind you that…
We expect you to be polite and courteous at all times.
Students are always to be punctual when arrangements have
been made to meet at a certain time and place.
Students are not to dash around the centre. Be considerate.
Students are not to go out alone. Students must be accompanied
by at least one other from our party.
No alcoholic drinks or smoking are allowed for the entire trip.
Any damage will be charged to parents/guardians.
If any pupil is uncooperative with staff they may be asked to
leave the visit. This will be at parents’ expense.
English is spoken / understood by most people in France. They
will understand if students are being rude as well as when they
are being polite.
