Wider Curriculum: Enrichment
Intent: To develop pupils’ personal development, behaviour and attitudes through engagement in stimulating activities which benefit the school and beyond.
Our wider curriculum enrichment offer is an integral part of our school curriculum, providing opportunities beyond the classroom each Friday afternoon.
Children in Years 1-6 are able to choose from a selection of clubs, run by school leaders, teachers and support staff. These clubs fit into three broad categories:
Growing Hearts and Minds
Creative and Expressive Arts
Sports and Fitness
Each enrichment club has a clear curriculum focus and session leaders plan carefully to ensure children have the opportunity to embed and apply skills developed across a broad range of curriculum areas. This enables children to apply skills in real-life contexts.
One of our key curriculum drivers is community. We see the local community as incredibly valuable to our children’s learning. We embed these links into our curriculum throughout each year group as we aim to develop pupils as empowered, responsible citizens ready to participate in life in modern day Britain and the wider world - in addition to fulfilling their academic potential. We are committed to ensuring that our children are equipped with the knowledge, skills, ability and determination to make a positive contribution to their local community and beyond.
As a result, each of our enrichment clubs have a clear link to our local community. These include performing in local homes for the elderly, public performances, social enterprise projects which aim to raise funds and awareness for a particular cause or charity which the school community votes on each term.
