As we designed our curriculum, thought is given to selecting memorable and hands on experiences to enrich learning and life over the time that children will attend Roundhay St John's. This includes visits out and visitors in school to inspire children with first hand experiences and accounts. These are often the things that we all remember when we look back on our days at primary school. Extra-curricular activities, which take place beyond the school day, play a role in providing opportunities to follow particular interests, try something new or compete with others and there is always a high take up. Planned ‘one off’ events and engagement with the local community are often the things that the children value highly. These things range from action packed residential trips, visits to places of interest, opportunities to perform and present and taking part in community events and supporting local traditions.
Enriching experiences also stem from opportunities to get actively involved in school life through a variety of responsibilities such as School Council, Food Ambassadors, and wide ranging opportunities to take on a whole range of responsibilities.
