Whole school curriculum enrichment days provide the opportunity for pupils to explore themes or subjects in greater depth. They allow pupils to develop additional skills whilst immersing them in creative activities and challenges that are different to their normal everyday lessons. Pupils often work with others from different classes and sometimes from other year groups, which strengthens and develops an array of social skills which we believe are important life skills as they grow up. As the same theme or subject is the focus across the whole school, pupils are able to share their learning with their families and make connections between what they have learnt in different year groups. The enrichment days may differ from year to year, but will celebrate a range of subjects over time.
