Curriculum enhancement

Visitors to school


There are regular visitors to school who assist with the delivery of our curriculum, these include local religious leaders, community readers, the Niscu theatre group, STEM science personnel and sporting coaches. Parents are also welcome to various events through the school year to help them understand our curriculum and to help them support at home.

We also have adhoc visitors to school who we use to support learning when required.


Trips, visits and off-site learning


Where funds and opportunity allow we are keen to take the opportunities presented by off-site learning. Through-out the year pupils engage in a range of trips and visits linked to the curriculum and we know that our pupils enjoy these and find them memorable.

Recent trips have included local walks around the village, science workshops, dance festivals and theatre trips.


Every year we take the whole school on a number of trips including a pantomime visit and summer term trip. Moreover the older pupils are offered a residential visit on an annual basis.


We believe that our pupils should all access their local environment as much as possible and in particular to get the opportunity to learn about their local history and the Lake District National Park. As such we explicitly state that all pupils should visit the Lake District at least once every year.




Our after-school club offer allows a supplement to the curriculum and can allow pupils to further develop their skills and interests.
