Trip to Ash End House Children’s Farm
We would like to invite your children to Ash End Children’s Farm in Tamworth during
February half term. The trip is open to students currently attending our TOP Kids classes on
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, and will be themed around Citizenship and
the importance of taking care of animals and our environment. We will also be encouraging
the children to think about the rights of animals in Islam and how we benefit from them.
The trip will be chaperoned by TOP Academy teachers at our usual teaching ratios, with
several qualified first-aiders, including specialist paediatric first-aid. If you have any
specific medical concerns that your child’s teachers do not already know about, please let
us know in advance.
