Enrichment at our school enhances the quality of the education we provide to our community. For us, this means three things in particular:
Creating memorable moments
Developing life skills
Day to day nurturing of the whole child
Our top priority at school is the day to day nurturing of the children. This comes through high quality teaching and guidance in all that the children bring to school and all they are as children. We make use of a range of experts, including play therapists, to develop the children's whole being.
In addition we provide a huge range of opportunities through the children to gain enriching experiences which include Themed Weeks, vision days. talent shows, trips and visitors. Among many other things, every child in the school is given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, swim and take part in a residential trip.
Our creative topic-based curriculum is also enhanced through Wow Starters and Grand Finales and we provide a range of extra-curricular clubs to further develop their opportunities to experience different things.
