Our enrichment programme is designed to enable our students to realise their potential in a variety of settings beyond the classroom and enhance their own personal development. It helps provide children with a rounded, culturally rich education through activities that enhance their learning by extending the curriculum beyond academic achievement. Enrichment gives students opportunities to try new and varied activities that may not strictly fit into the curriculum, but that develop character, resilience and motivation, and encourage them to pursue wider goals. It helps to teach life skills that benefit children beyond the classroom, and can develop an appreciation for cultural and community issues, teamwork and social responsibility.
Here at Churchill Special Free School, we strongly believe that enrichment opportunities are an essential part of our students’ education and therefore the choices on offer are guided by pupil voice. Three afternoons a week, after the end of the formal day, the students access a programme of curriculum enrichment activities which include: coding, singing, cooking, gardening and crafts. We are lucky to be supported by external organisations including The New Croft Haverhill Community Sports Association that run our football enrichment. Students get the opportunity to work with a variety of different year groups and staff across the school which builds relationships outside of their class team.
