At King’s Ely Acremont we aim to develop all children intellectually, socially and emotionally, and to provide them with a challenging and enriched curriculum. We endeavour to provide all pupils with appropriate enrichment and extension activities, giving them the opportunity to gain new experiences, develop skills and interests beyond the curriculum.
Pupils can expect to take part in numerous educational opportunities during the school day, including visits to museums, theatres and workshops, as well as benefiting from other activities in school, such as themed days, visits by speakers, musical workshops and other performances.
Each term, pupils choose from a range of enrichment opportunities which take place on a Friday afternoon. These might typically include debating, projects involving the local community, speech and drama, art, electronics, healthy lifestyles, outdoor learning, enterprise, and design and technology projects.
The curriculum is further enriched by clubs and activities, which are organised at lunchtimes and after school for all year groups, covering a broad spectrum of interests including art, sport, dance, modern foreign languages, chess, forest school, and ICT. Clubs reflect the expertise of the staff and the interests and enthusiasm of pupils.
Our extension programme provides opportunities for pupils to further deepen their knowledge, understanding, and skills in different areas of the curriculum. This may take the form of project-based work led by our Enrichment and Extension Coordinator, or within lessons, supported by individual class teachers.
