The department recognises the significant benefits that activities outside the classroom, which may include school trips out of the country, can have for children’s mental health and wellbeing, as well as their educational and social development.

The department does not collect data on how many children participate in such trips. Schools are best placed to understand and meet the needs of their pupils and have flexibility to decide what range of extra-curricular excursions to offer.
