Entitlements (clubs, trips and visits)
Our ethos is that of excellence. We aspire to achieve excellence in all that we do, in so doing our children are happy, well-rounded and able to enjoy the successes of life. We believe that deliberately planning experiences to support the acquisition of knowledge is an integral part of the delivery of our curriculum.
To provide children with opportunities to dream big and extend themselves beyond that which they thought was possible.
We recognise that a rich, varied and appropriate curriculum will facilitate meaningful learning. The purpose of the planned experience is to provide pupils with experiences outside their everyday activities. Learning outside the classroom therefore adds value to each individual’s academic and personal development and is a key component in the implementation of our curriculum intent. The experiences are deliberately planned as part of a learning journey, therefore reducing pupils cognitive load. They are encouraged to make links which then enhance the work back in the classroom setting.
A range of learning opportunities are in place to support the teaching of our creative curriculum, including: educational visits and visitors in addition to residential trips, personalised provision to ensure inclusion for all, stimulating learning environments, innovative use of resources and a varied timetable of after-school activities. A wide range of enrichment and enjoyment activities, including residential opportunities, are embedded in the curriculum and these are used effectively to engage pupils, develop social skills and provide much needed life experiences.
