Learning outside the classroom
A focus on ‘real life learning’ will:
engage pupils deeply in matters of sustainability, environmentalism, social and ethical issues
develop personal and social skills through real-life, practical or hands-on activities
promote increased self-esteem, and inspire pupils to become more engaged in their education.
Further investment in ICT as a tool for learning will:
provide "digital pencil cases" for all pupils
create an environment in which children are excited and curious about learning
ensure pupils are future ready through the interaction with robotics, AI and engineering.
Playing music is a workout for the brain - it develops social skills, teamwork and discipline.
Music participation is linked to greater academic achievement.
Music provides a platform for pupils to express themselves, enhancing their natural creativity.
The use of our on-site recording facilities will enable pupils to explore and expand their musical skills incorporating composition and recording.
It is our intention that drama will be taught throughout the year groups to allow pupils to express their creativity and build their confidence through live performances.
These initiatives will:
enable children to cope better with stress, anxiety and exam pressures
build resilience and the ability to cope in anticipated and unexpected scenarios
increase awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle
develop emotional intelligence, seen as one of the most important prerequisites for the changing job market.
