At the Federation of Spixworth Schools we believe that pupils need to learn beyond the national curriculum too. Providing a range of enhancement and enrichment experiences are key to developing the whole child. They open doors to new worlds, promote enquiry, develop interests and allow pupils to identify and develop knowledge and skills that they may otherwise have never discovered.
Throughout the course of each pupil’s time at both Spixworth Infant School and Woodland View Junior School they are provided with the opportunity to try new and different activities that go beyond the national expectations for their age. Each half term, a different enrichment activity is provided, these range from first aid, road safety and makaton signing to outdoor adventure, regular performances and wellbeing support.
Further enrichments are offered through visits and visitors. Offsite visits enable our pupils to undertake first hand experiences beyond the classroom, providing real-life opportunities and enhancements that cannot be replicated in school. Visitors to the school allow pupils to learn from experts in their field and provides opportunities for pupils to ask questions and find out more.
A growing range of after school clubs further complements our offer. Cooking and sports clubs are regular and many are provided free or for a minimum cost.
