ENRICHMENT AT BROOKVALE PRIMARY SCHOOL

IMG_0386

At Brookvale Primary School, we offer a fantastic and purposeful enrichment programme to engage our children in the wider community, build personal character and teach important life-skills. Enrichment activities are planned to develop our pupils’ skills needed for everyday life, their future learning and life beyond school.

We believe that enrichment can extend the range of educational experiences for our children, broaden their horizons by giving them the opportunity to try new things while also giving students the opportunity to find out more about their interests and passions.

RESIDENTIALS, EDUCATIONAL VISITS AND OPPORTUNITIES

Where appropriate, educational visits are planned to provide first-hand learning experiences which enhance, and provide depth to, children’s learning and understanding.

We provide enrichment opportunities for all children from sport to arts including music. Our geography curriculum is ambitious and an example of our school providing an above and beyond the national curriculum offer because it incorporates fieldwork in all year groups in KS2. We are proud of our outdoor education in KS2, all children can attend a residential in each year group. We have considered that Brookvale is in an area of high and multiple deprivation and developed our own sleep overs in school for Y3, 4 and 5 and this allows all our children to attend residentials and gain valuable experience and memories. As part of this, the children take part in outdoor education either onsite or we make use of the local Gorse Woods or Delamere Forest and then sleepovers take place in school using tents and sleeping bags we provide. In Y6, the children stay off-site for several days in Llandudno.
