Enrichment

Our curriculum extends beyond the National Curriculum and includes a wide range of enriching experiences and opportunities both within and beyond the school day. This includes a programme of after-school clubs, that support the core curriculum offer, whilst also extending the range of children’s experiences and Cultural Capital.

Pupils have the opportunity to choose from a range of extra-curricular activities.

At Manor Farm Academy, we provide a broad range of enrichment opportunities – focused around Sports, STEM, the Arts and Culture – as we firmly believe that these opportunities have a number of benefits for our pupils, both academically and personally by broadening their life experiences.

Primary enrichment gives students the chance to participate in activities that supplement learning and enable them to broaden their skills and experiences, identify talent and enhance it.

Each club is designed to support our pupils to master new skills, discover new hobbies and develop their current passions.

Every half term, our after-school provision timetable changes, this supports us to provide our pupils with a range of after school activities. We encourage our pupils to commit to a half term for each club, as research suggests pupils are most likely to be successful in mastering a new skill if they commit to the skill over a sustained period of time.
