Curriculum Enhancement Programme
Every week two Thursday afternoons, conventional school is replaced with ‘Curriculum Enhancement’; an afternoon of enrichment activities run by specialists. These opportunities are intended to broaden your child’s experience of the curriculum and introduce them to new skills, knowledge and experiences. Alternatively, your child can leave school at 1.55pm to continue their learning from home for the afternoon.
If you choose to remain in school, students must commit to attending every session. Failure to attend regularly hinders progress and development and denies other students a chance to participate.
Absence Reporting via the SIMS Parent App
Parents are urged to encourage their child to attend every session to benefit from the programme. If your child is absent, parents are requested to mark the absence via the SIMS Parent app (Click here to access guide) at the earliest opportunity or by 10am on the day of the session. Email requests will not be accepted unless there is an emergency. If your SIMS Parent app is not working, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to resolve the issues.
