Enrichment and Extra Curriculum Activities.
The traditional curriculum is supported by the wealth of extra curriculum activities that happen throughout the week and year. Every Friday afternoon pupils complete the week with an Enrichment session (I.C.E time.) The class can choose what activity they want to participate in ranging from LEGO to scooters. The numerous choices that pupils select from allows them to further develop their social skills while having fun! These activities include: cycling, arts and crafts, football, gardening, meditation, yoga, music and many more.
In the mornings, breakfast club is available for all pupils so they can be prepared for the day of learning ahead. School pupils can take part in various clubs; arts and crafts, newspaper, School Council, Chaplaincy, Yoga, Ball games, Homework Club, mindfulness colouring and many more.
Throughout the year the teachers plan opportunities to enrich the curriculum wherever they can with activities and trips to support the class topic: Noticeable trips include Warwick Castle, Imperial War Museum, Roald Dahl Museum and toy museums!
Classes also take part in the Prince William Award (PWA) which provides bespoke support for children. The SkillForce Prince’s Award is part of an innovative collection of character education programmes designed to develop values such as confidence and encourage teamwork and leadership skills. Participants gain nationally recognised awards for First Aid and Navigation and the programme is a unique combination of reflective learning and practical activities, enabling learners to connect with their goals and aspirations.
Upper KS2 children also take an active part in becoming Play Leaders and Wellbeing Leaders through the Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning (GHLL) partnership.
