Enrichment and Achievement
At Danesholme Infant Academy we believe that education is more than just mastering English and maths - it's also about activities that extend children's learning through new experiences and opportunities.
Enrichment helps provide children with a rounded, culturally rich education through activities that enhance their learning.
Enrichment gives children opportunities to try new and varied activities that may not strictly fit into the curriculum, but that develop character, resilience and motivation, and encourages them to pursue wider goals.
It helps to teach life skills that benefit children beyond the classroom, and can develop an appreciation for cultural and community issues, teamwork and social responsibility.
Research by the Education Endowment Foundation has also found a link between enrichment and higher attainment in reading and maths.
