Enrichment

We at PMGHS ensure our pupils are given the opportunity to develop and learn through creativity in all areas of the curriculum rather than just through the delivery of a scheme of work.

Each curriculum area are expected to develop enrichment activities for learners

Enrichment within curriculum areas should be aimed at:

  • Increasing enjoyment within that curriculum area
  • Developing independent learning and challenging in gifted and talented students in the curriculum area
  • Developing the profile of the curriculum area or particular skills and themes within that area

Each curriculum area will develop their enrichment activity in the coming academic year.  Enrichment will include:

  • Development of clubs linked to one or more curriculum areas
  • Development of faculty-based trips and outdoor learning opportunities
  • Inviting external facilitators to further engage pupils with particular activities
  • Celebrating a particular ‘National Day’ or ‘World Week’ such as ‘Science week’ related to an issue of relevance to the curriculum area

The enrichment activities will be delivered through various activities and at different times:

  • Lessons to celebrate a particular ‘National Day’ or ‘World Week’ related to an issue of relevance to the curriculum area
  • After school clubs
  • Through half termly Enrichment days
  • Assemblies
