Waste service strike

The waste service strike is now over and we have restarted service from 27 September 2023.

Over the next few weeks, our waste service team and private waste contractors will catch up on missed collections and street cleaning as quickly as possible.

We thank everyone for their patience and apologise for the inconvenience

School visits

Educational and school visits provide a valuable opportunity for pupils to have experiences that cannot be gained in the classroom. School outings allow pupils to develop initiative, resourcefulness and independence.

All school visits must be carried out in a way that ensures the welfare and safety of the pupils taking part in them.

Guidelines on organising school visits have been developed to provide helpful and practical advice for governing bodies, teachers and headteachers.

For further information on educational visits, please contact your local school directly. Please refer to the list of primary, secondary and nursery schools in the borough for contact details.
