At Hatcham Primary we see Enrichment as a part of every child’s educational experience.
An important part of Enrichment is that it must enhance the curriculum and the pupils’ general learning experience.
This applies both to work done in the classroom and to activities outside school. It is important that all learners should receive an enriched diet in their everyday school life, as emphasised by our ‘Every Child Matters’ policy.
There are a large and ever expanding range of activities available for pupils at each phase and they take place during Enrichment time in the extended school day.
Some courses are designed to ‘round out’ the basic curriculum subjects with a wider context, while others provide pupils with experiences outside the regular curriculum.
The Enrichment programme as a whole promotes individuality of response and encourages originality and invention. The fact that pupils can make their own choice of activity in most cases allows them to take some responsibility for their own learning.
