Our curriculum is supported by a wide range of co-curricular activities which aim to bring learning to life in addition to everyday classroom experience. Many of these form part of our SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural) provision. Our co-curricular programme can be divided into three main groups:
- Enhancement activities for a specific group, year group/s or the whole school which takes place outside the classroom and in addition to the planned curriculum.
For example Forest School; Young Voices; special curriculum weeks such as arts weeks, STEM weeks, environment weeks; school productions; residential visits, sports days and tournaments
- Enrichment visits to another location to bring learning to life, or workshops on our school site
For example a museum or gallery visit; a field or gardens visit; a history or science workshop run by visitors to our school
- Inspirational people with specific skills, knowledge or experience who engage, enrich and inspire our pupils
For example visiting scientists, authors and sports professionals; curriculum experience days; online interviews or talks
