Exciting Enrichment Sessions Inspire Inquisitiveness

Every week, children always look forward to their ‘enrichment’ sessions here at school – Thursday afternoons for KS1 and Friday afternoons for KS2. There are so many different activities that are offered to expand the children’s horizons, above and beyond the National Curriculum.
