Enrichment Programme

We believe that students should be exposed to opportunities to develop skills that extend beyond our curriculum, simply developing a love of learning.

For that reason, we have scheduled a weekly enrichment session for colleagues. This takes place on a Wednesday Period 7.

The enrichment programme aims to develop students who are:

•Reflective thinkers—they understand their own strengths and limitations, identify goals and devise strategies for personal growth
•Willing to accept new challenges and new roles
•Aware of themselves as members of communities with responsibilities towards each other and the environment
•Active participants in sustained, collaborative projects
•Balanced—they enjoy and find significance in a range of activities involving intellectual, physical, creative and emotional experiences.
 
To that end, we have set a series of manageable objectives for students, to help them to chart their progress in the units:
 
•Worked collaboratively with others. - Collaboration can be shown in many different activities, such as team sports, playing music in a band, or helping at a community project. At least one project, involving collaboration and the integration of at least two of creativity, action and service, is required.
•Shown perseverance and commitment in their activities.  - At a minimum, this implies attending regularly and accepting a share of the responsibility for dealing with problems that arise in the course of activities.
•Engaged with issues of global importance. - Students may be involved in international projects but there are many global issues that can be acted upon locally or nationally (for example, environmental concerns, caring for the elderly).
•Considered the ethical implications of their actions.  - Ethical decisions arise in almost any CAS activity (for example, on the sports field, in musical composition, in relationships with others involved in service activities). Evidence of thinking about ethical issues can be shown in various ways, including journal entries and conversations with CAS advisers.
•Developed new skills.  - As with new challenges, new skills may be shown in activities that the student has not previously undertaken, or in increased expertise in an established area. 
 
Key Elements of the programme:
 
- Celebration Assemblies - Students showcase their enrichment work over a half term, and are presented with the activities' on offer in the next half term.
- Awards - At the end of the year, students can apply for an enrichment award, through completing an application which asks them to review their learning across the course.
