Extended opportunities

The wider curriculum

Visits

We are always looking for ways to further enrich the children’s learning experiences. Each year we plan a variety of visits relating to the curriculum areas. They are used to stimulate interest and to consolidate and extend learning.  If we can’t get out to visit, then we get people in to visit us!

Clubs

In addition, the children receive a number of further opportunities to widen their learning – Golden Time is a great activity that all children really look forward to as well as our extensive range of extra-curricular clubs. In Year 5, children will also be offered the opportunity to join a residential visit.

Acts of Worship / Assemblies

These are an important part of our wider curriculum.  They are an opportunity for us all to come together as a school community.  It is a time to deepen our understanding of our core Christian values.

Sporting Activities

Children are often keen to extend a particular interest or skill, and we pride ourselves on the extensive range of further sporting opportunities for pupils. Throughout the year, there are many and varied opportunities for children to represent the school in Inter-School competitions. We aim to enter every event possible and to invite as broad a range of pupils as possible to take part.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education, and Education for Citizenship

During the year a wide range of themes are covered with a spiritual, moral, social, cultural or citizenship focus. Children are also given many experiences in school, which extend their understanding and development in these areas. Many of these experiences are developed through our Assembly Themes.

Environmental Education

Pupils are taught to have respect for the environment through various opportunities linked to our Eco and Forest Schools work.
