Extending the Curriculum Offer
Experiences, Visits and Visitors
We work hard to enhance learning through enrichment opportunities including taking children on visits, residentials and inviting visitors into school.
Educational visits, art, drama, musical and enterprise activities are regular features of our curriculum.These activities enhance our curriculum and, although usually quite costly, we place these experiences at the heart of our curriculum.
We now provide the opportunity for all of our Year 5 children to visit London to see the amazing sights that form our capital city and experience a London west end show.
We are dedicated to giving the children a broad experience of the arts. Children are given many opportunities to experience a variety of different art techniques often supported by local or community artists. Performance is high profile in the school and children sing popular, classical and brand new songs. All of these skills are drawn upon in our 'Play in a Day' in conjunction with our local charity Park Street. The Academy is fortunate to have been the first pilot Academy to take part in 'Play in a Day' and our children have the most amazing experience. From creating and dressing up in period costumes, sets, props, choreography, working as a team, creating backstage crews we draw upon the skills of all of our children
