The aims of Enrichment at Whittle Academy are:
- To provide a wide range of enriching experiences and opportunities both within and beyond the school day
- To develop the ‘whole child’ ready for future pathways
- To build an awareness of ‘positive mental health’
- To promote character building, self-improvement and teamwork skills.
Delivering of Enrichment Opportunities at Whittle Academy:
The Inspire Curriculum extends well beyond the 2014 National Curriculum and includes a wide range of enriching experiences and opportunities both within and beyond the school day.
Enrichment opportunities are organised through well-developed programmes of lunchtime and after-school clubs that support the Core Curriculum offer, as well as those which develop specialist skills, such as
- Art club
- Choir and singing club
At Whittle Academy, we use Forest Schools to help children further develop their confidence, self- esteem and supported risk taking in a safe natural environment. As children become familiar with Forest Schools they take their new-found confidence into the classroom and into other areas of their lives.
As part of our continuing commitment to school sport and the enhancement of ‘the lived daily experience’ of our children, we offer a wide range of clubs. Through feedback from children and parents we have developed a tailored and highly successful bespoke offer that is catered especially for our children.
