For children and young people to reach their full potential they need a positive approach to learning and to school. It’s widely acknowledged that having opportunities before and after school to play sport, engage in arts and drama and make creative use of ICT will all help them achieve their potential.
A varied menu of learning activities that take place out of school hours, help to improve young people’s motivation, build their self-esteem and help them to become more effective learners. Above all it aims to raise achievement.
Our schools are developing a varied menu of extra-curricular activities from 8am to 6pm (provided there is sufficient demand) during term time plus flexible holiday provision, using a combination of ‘in-house’ and external suppliers. These activities could include:
- Supporting study, ‘catch up’, ‘stretch’ activities and homework clubs
- Arts activities such as dance, drama, DT and crafts sports activities
- Other recreational activities, for example creative use of ICT, music lessons, languages, enterprise activities, museum visits and residential trips
- Holiday provision and summer schools.
We are always looking for suggestions for lunchtime, out of school and holiday activities you would like to see offered at your school.
