Sandon JMI School

Learning, Resilience, Independence

Enrichment

 

We offer children a curriculum far wider than the National Curriculum. We want children to feel an emotional connexion to their learning which comes from extending understanding and knowledge through new opportunities and experiences

 

We strive to help our children see the importance of lifelong learning, resilience and independence through offering a range of enrichment activities. We do this in order to:

  • to help children develop the interests and talents;
  • enable children to develop their character including resilience, confidence and independence;
  • teach children how to keep physically and mentally healthy;
  • equip children to be responsible respectful and active citizens;
  • prepare them for future success.
