Enrichment for all

At Coppice School, we offer a wide range of experiences and challenges that encourage enrichment throughout curriculum provision through a variety of different resources and experiences. This ensures that our pupils are inspired to learn in and out of the classroom, building on skills that are required for their journey to adulthood.

Through our Curriculum Enrichment programme, we use the talents and experiences of others from outside of the school, in combination with the talents and interests of staff within our school, to enrich our student’s education.

The activities offered vary from physically challenging and cultural, to school based activities. Listed below are some of the examples of how we enrich our pupils learning:

  • Theatre visits

  • Residential visits for post 16

  • Whole school/key stage theme days

  • Using the climbing wall at Stone Hill School

  • Horse riding

  • Swimming

  • Enterprise projects

  • Our own school-based productions and performances

  • Workshops and visitors to develop areas of learning

  • Lunchtime and after school clubs. 

  • Trips and visits in the local and wider community

  • International visits

  • Work Experience

We love to take part in other activities which might not be directly liked to our curriculum offer but provide our pupils with a varied school experience throughout their time at Coppice School.

In line with the Enrichment and Entitlement offer, pupils are provided with at least two new experiences
each term. These are planned into curricular learning by class teachers. We are very fortunate that we have a number of school buses which means our classes can go out quite often and we aim that all groups should have a meaningful and relevant community visit once a week.

No limit clubs continue to run on Friday afternoons, providing pupils with the
opportunity to acquire new hobby-based skills, develop social and communication skills and learn
about new and exciting topics.

Pupils throughout school are given homework to support the learning that they are doing in school where this is appropriate, to help embed these key skills. Project and thematic based homework is changed termly or half termly based on individual class needs.
