For those pupils who, having researched and contacted a charity also wish to visit them the following guidelines apply:

  • visits should be made in your own time where possible; i.e. weekend, evening, or perhaps during February mid-term.
  • if this is not possible then the school may approve a visit during school time on receipt of a request in writing from your parent. This would be for a maximum of one half-day and any additional visits would be in your own time.
  • transport arrangements for visiting charities, whether in your own or school time, or any arrangements made between groups are entirely a parental responsibility;

Please note that successful participation in YPI requires contact and communication with the chosen charity and whilst a visit can add to this there is no requirement or expectation that you do visit.
