Enrichment

“We are dedicated to enriching the lives of our pupils, to broaden their horizons and raise aspirations. Our ambition is for all our schools to engage and inspire pupils through a varied, impactful and sustainable enrichment programme. A programme which is embedded within and complements curriculum delivery, offering real opportunities for the development of our pupils’ social, emotional and life competencies.”

Curriculum Enrichment

We are proud of our enrichment programme which offers children the opportunity to develop new skills in a range of areas. We believe in enriching the lives of our pupils with a range of extracurricular clubs run by both the school and outside agencies, as well as with external visits, guest speakers, and more. These are available to children as they move through the school, and information is sent to parents throughout the year.

We aim to open children up to experiences that broaden the curriculum on a regular basis. Examples of in-school events include a visit from West End in Schools Dance, author visits, local community representatives, Dance and Performing Arts, Living Eggs and Norfolk Road Safety Officers. Examples of offsite visits include Norwich Castle, Time and Tide Museum, Carlton Marshes Nature Reserve, Africa Alive, Wroxham Barns Farm and the use of the local library.

All the children enjoy games and activities in school at lunchtime and after-school, using a variety of equipment.

Over the school year, after-school clubs can include football, nature/gardening, dance, gymnastics, choir, and many more. Please see below for more information.

Here are the extra-curricular clubs taking place at the moment:

OCPPA are proud to be part of the #iwill movement, as are all OAT academies. Our School Council is regularly involved in #iwill activities.

#iwill is a movement comprised of over 1,000 organisations and 700 young #iwill ambassadors and champions from across the UK. They are united by a shared belief that all children and young people should be supported and empowered to make a positive difference on the issues that affect their lives, their communities, and broader society.

Driving progress towards the #iwill movement’s shared vision is The Power of Youth Charter. The Charter provides a framework for organisations to empower more young people to shape decisions, take social action and make a positive difference.
