At Grendon Primary School, we offer an Enrichment Programme to all pupils. This enrichment supports pupils' personal development and provides pupils with learning opportunities beyond the academic curriculum. It offers a breadth of experiences and the development of life skills. Our Enrichment programme directly meets our school aims;

  • We can offer enriching activities, events and experiences.
  • We can build independent and resilient learners who are able to communicate confidently.

We want pupils to leave Grendon Primary School with a breadth of experience, an understanding of opportunity and a bank of happy memories.

There are various strands of our enrichment provision, each with a specific purpose. Further information is included below.
