Arete Outdoor Centre are still here and waiting, keen for the Government to produce clarity and guidance on School overnights. With a Department for Education review concluding in November we have been told this will lead to them producing the much needed guidance for a January 2021 start for residentials.
However with no school income since March outdoor education centres in general are being forced to close. We need your help to keep pressure on the Government to stick to their promise. As you all know, these residential trips form an important part of a pupils education, and never more so when well-being and mental health are of a real national concern. Even though centres have shown that they can operate safely in this pandemic in line with schools opening, the Government have left us all in limbo.
We ask people to write to their MP, follow and share @saveoutdoored #saveoutdoored, and sign our petition to Parliament. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/330559
