Enrichment Opportunities

At Our Lady Primary School we offer an extensive range of enrichment opportunities. These opportunities enhance our personalised curriculum and allow all children to develop, embed and enrich skills and knowledge. Furthermore, these opportunities allow our children to develop skills outside of the curriculum and teach them skills in order to succeed in their futures. Some opportunities are whole-school initiatives, while others are focussed on small groups or individuals.

An example of some of the enrichment opportunities we provide are: workshops, visitors, library visits, working with local community charity groups, music tuition, extra-curricular clubs, play leaders, visits to local secondary schools, specific year group education visits, cultural weeks, celebrating different faiths, residential trips for years 4 and 6 and many more!

In school we provide many enrichment opportunities such as: booster groups, greater depth maths groups for our Year 6 cohort, phonics enrichment groups, visits to our secondary school libraries, book club, many different after-school clubs, lunch club, lunch sport clubs, school council and eco council.

School Council 

 The school council is made up of 2 children from Years 1-6. Each member of the school council has been voted for by their class. It is a very honourable role and as a group they are responsible for lots of different school based activities and events.

School Council's Definition of Wellbeing

The School Council meets every three weeks with Miss Davis, and sometimes School Governors join meetings. Children use the School Council to put forward ideas from their class Council meetings. A majority vote system is used, so that decisions are made fairly. If you are a member of it you have to do lots of important things to help the school such as: raising money, raising awareness of events, helping in assemblies and at different events and being role models.

School Councillors 2020 - 2021

Each class voted for their school councillors after hearing their persuasive speeches. In total we have 12 school councillors from years 1-6.

Below are each classes school council representatives.

This year the Eco Council wanted to reduce single-use plastics. We decided to take on the ‘Plastic Free Schools Challenge’ set up by Surfers Against Sewage. To do this we need to meet the following 5 objectives:

  1. Hold an assembly.
  2. Do a litter pick
  3. Write to businesses
  4. Write to the local MP
  5. Eliminate 3 sources of single-use plastic from school.
     

    The Eco council completed objective 1 when we invited ‘Myrtle the Turtle’ into school to talk about the harm plastic is having on our environment (See gallery for photos).

    We are currently working on objective 5- eliminating 3 sources of single-use plastic from our school.

    See the latest letter from the Eco Council attached that explains which two plastics we have already eliminated. 

    The Eco Council are also busy organising a litter pick for the summer term.
