The Claygate Charter
At Claygate Primary, our children participate in weekly Enrichment sessions. Our rich offer includes:
Terrific Textilers, Brilliant Botanists, M-Fit, Multisports, Music & Drama, Woodland Explorers and Orienteering (KS2 only).
These sessions enable children to explore elements of the national curriculum through a variety of practical activities, enriching their understanding of Science, PSHE, DT, Geography and PE. All activities are carefully designed to promote both mental and physical well-being. They foster transferable skills and boost overall academic achievement, leading to better future work opportunities, enhanced well-being and self-esteem.
These opportunities are highly valued as they give children the time to explore and use their imagination, develop self-confidence and self-esteem and build responsibility and resilience. Led by experienced members of staff, the programme provides vibrant and exciting opportunities to learn new skills and practise them over time. We make full use of our wonderful grounds for these sessions.
Children will complete a half-termly block of each Enrichment unit every year. The knowledge and skills children acquire are built upon in each Enrichment segment; equally experiences are built upon through each progressive level.
"The ‘Claygate Charter’ provides pupils with a variety of enrichment activities, such as gardening, sport, art and Japanese. These help promote pupils’ physical and mental well-being. Many more pupils are representing the school in sporting fixtures." - OFSTED 2020
