What is enrichment in schools?
Enrichment is not a necessary requirement for schools to provide to their students, however, it is highly recommended by the Department of Education and Ofsted in order to encourage personal development and extra-curricular education which ultimately aids academic success.
With enrichment activities, children learn more about themselves. From the topics that interest them to the talents they discover. Children of all ages are developing rapidly, both mentally and physically, and enrichment provides avenues for them to experiment and find subjects – whether academic or not – which appeal to them.
Regardless of whether a student finds inspiration towards a career path or becomes infatuated with a new interest, enrichment workshops are an exciting day to pencil into the calendar. Our enrichment activities are designed to challenge students so that they can develop their ‘soft skills’, like independence, determination, self-esteem and creativity. Furthermore, these activities are opportunities to help children progress towards becoming capable citizens, as we equip them to learn responsibility, respect and empathy.
From learning about other cultures and aspects of life they may previously be unfamiliar with, to engaging in team projects and taking the lead on their newfound interests, enrichment has the potential to enhance the education of every student, so that they can find the motivation to succeed both inside and outside of the classroom
