Trips and Enrichment

The curriculum at Brantridge is further enhanced by the school’s excellent range of outdoor space which is used to support pupils’ and students’ learning experiences on a daily basis.

Pupils also have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities to develop their skills through being involved in, for example, the School council, cooking, music and drama. We also have a bouldering wall which helps pupils burn off some energy whilst working on their gross motor skills and their pencil grips.

Each class has an hour of outdoor learning per week. They also have half a term swimming and half a term gymnastics at local leisure centres. We offer half a term of golf and half a term of Mountain biking to our KS2 pupils.

Teachers plan enriching activities both on and off site linked with our topics or national events which are happening. Where pupils have other needs or barriers to learning they may be offered modified timetable sessions which focus on the needs led curriculum areas of: Myself and others, learning to learn, functional independence and language and communication.
