Enrichment Week

Enrichment Week at Cirencester Deer Park School is a key part of our promise to deliver "more than a visible curriculum and challenge all pupils to achieve more than they first think is possible."

Enrichment Week is far more than an activities week. It is  a valuable opportunity for us to challenge our pupils to achieve more and to make use of rich learning resources that exist beyond our classrooms. Our pupils not only learn about their destinations or new environments; they also learn more about themselves and develop the softer skills that will help them become responsible citizens in the future. They learn about innovation, creativity and sustainability, team work and team leadership, how to co-operate with others, meet deadlines, manage themselves and take responsibility. I am grateful to all of the members of staff who plan and support these dynamic experiences for our pupils and I never cease to be amazed at what our children can achieve!

As well as being great fun, the trips and activities have educational purposes that aim to give every pupil the opportunity to experience new situations outside of the classroom, widen pupils’ horizons, give pupils the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people. The week also aims to develop pupils' resilience, independence and confidence, promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, social and physical development of pupils and prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in modern Britain.
