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.


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.  The children also get to visit local areas of interests, such as Liverpool Maritime Museum, The Roman Experience in Chester and we also put on event days to bring topics alive, such as Titanic Day and WW2 day. The whole school also produce artwork for a public display as part of the local Primary Art's network, we have also held art exhibitions in school. We also provide children with musical experiences, our Y2 take part in Infant Music Festival, Y4 visit the Halle Orchestra and Y6 take part and attend Young Voices at the Manchester Arena.


Jake is one of our Year 6 children, who has been off school due to a long term illness and has spent most of his time at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. So, our fabulous Y6 children along with Miss Knowles came up with the idea to raise money for Jake and his family by walking 14 miles. (14 miles is the distance from our school to Alder Hey Hospital) Over the week, our Y6 children walked each day (sometimes over 3 miles!) to reach the target mileage of 14 miles. Plus our sensational staff walked on the Saturday from school to Alder Hey covering the full 14 miles!

Along with Year 5’s Bake Sale who raised £267, took the overall funds to over £2700!

What the children and staff at Brookvale achieved was quite remarkable and demonstrated true community spirit and we hope that the money raised for Jake, can help with his recovery.
