Curriculum Enhancement Programme


On week 2 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 for your child to remain in school, a one-off, non-refundable, annual payment of £30 is required and 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 google forms (tbc)

Parents are urged to encourage their child to attend every session to benefit from the programme.  If your child is absent, or due to be absent, please email Ms Noreen on or complete the following form (coming soon from September 2023) at least 2 days in advance.  Last minute email requests will not be accepted unless there is an emergency.
