All pupils have opportunities to access a wide range of before school, lunchtime and after school clubs. Recent clubs have included: singing, dancing, drama, football, basketball, dodgeball, yoga, homework support, digital media and craft work.
We aim to provide a range of opportunities so that all children can access an after school club. Pupils thoughts are canvassed each year as to what kinds of clubs they would like to have and we aim to match our club choices to these requests.
Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve self-esteem and confidence through hands-on learning experiences in our on-site copse. Our provider leads weekly sessions and, over the course of the year, all classes take part in forest school sessions, that include survival skills such as building shelters and how to make a fire!
We aim to further enhance our curriculum by offering educational visits once per term that link to topics being taught in class, enhancing learning outcomes in a wide variety of subjects. We use our local environment as much as possible. Recent trips have included: farm visits, theatre trips, the Houses of Parliament, Leicester Botanical Gardens, Conkers Outdoor Adventure Centre and The Warning Zone.
A special mention must be given to our annual involvement with Young Voices. Children in KS2 have the opportunity to join the world's largest school choir and sing at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham with over 7,500 other school children from around the UK; a truly unforgettable experience.
We run residential trips for children in Years 5 and 6 alongside our partner school Dunton Bassett Primary to deliver aspects of the Outdoor Pursuits curriculum, as well as help the children learn about themselves and others in a different environment. Recently we have been to Hilltop Outdoor Centre in Norfolk, Boreatton Park near Shrewsbury and Beaumanor Residential Centre near Loughborough.
