Extra-curricular

Extra- curricular activities are designed to widen the pupil’s opportunities and to motivate their overall learning. Most children have access to dance classes and to cookery classes. Also many children benefit from activities such as horse riding, football coaching, gardening and yoga.

We also run three after school clubs each week, these are Athletics, Dance and Lego Club.

Pupils have access to the local and wider community as part of their curriculum offer. Children who have difficulties connecting their thinking require additional opportunities for community involvement in order to generalise skills learnt in the classroom. As part of their everyday curriculum pupils access local shops, shopping centres, leisure centres and recreational facilities. Pupils also have opportunities to visit places related to their cross curricular area of studies, this may involve visits to the Theatre, Ecology sites and Museums.

We cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into our son. You are amazing and we appreciate everything you have done for us as a family.
