Curriculum Enrichment

In addition to teaching the National Curriculum, the school also offers Enrichment Curriculum Time which aims to develop children’s life skills and provide vertical learning opportunities. Every Friday afternoon between 2 – 3pm, the whole school takes part in a wide variety of enrichment activities.

We effectively use parent and pupil voice to plan bespoke enrichment activities which families have requested further exploration with. Each child is then offered a choice of exciting activities and will participate in this activity for one half- term (placed within a mixed-age group). Activities cover a wide range of areas but all encourage children to develop personal, learning and thinking skills inclusive of: team work, self reflection and critical thinking. We also provide activities which will promote self-esteem and develop social skills. We work in close partnership with the local community; we use local amenities and facilities to enable pupils to build links with local groups in the community such as Mill House Leisure Centre and local dance schools. 

This term we have lots of exciting activities for the children to become involved with.
