Enrichment

To ensure our curriculum is broad, balanced, varied and unique we also plan further enrichment activities for the children both in school and out.

Below are just some of the activities planned for our children at Long Mead last year, as well as other things to look forward to over this year too.

When planning enrichment activities we take into account the National Curriculum and the children's ideas through discussions with the school council and within classes. Ideas are also developed through discussions with teachers, parents and governors as to what we believe the children within this setting need in order to be secondary ready, as well as life long learners.
