Curricular 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. Activities such as Outdoor learning have been highly successful in helping pupils develop their self-esteem and their ability to form good working relationships with others. Pupils and students 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 a double lesson of outdoor learning per week. They also have half a term swimming and half a term gymnastics at local leisure centres. 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.

So far this year we have had:

October 2018- Digital day, Fire station trip, Clink Museum trip and Halloween

November 2018- Ezekiel Ewulo fitness morning

December 2018- Marvel Avengers STATION and Christmas open afternoon and singing.

January 2019 – Roman day

February 2019- Safer Internet day

March 2019 – World book day and Red Nose day

The communication between home and school is excellent.
