At the beginning of this academic year, the School began its enrichment programme to broaden the experiences of the young people at Bladon. Initially these activities were only offered to our residential students, as the provision was in its infancy.
Since the start of the Spring Term our enrichment programme has expanded, with members of the staff team offering their vast skills and unique talents to allow young people explore, develop and nurture new and existing interests.
This term our diverse offer has included, African Drumming, Bangra Dancing, Circus Skills, Textiles, Skateboarding, Multimedia and many more… These new activities have run seamlessly alongside our already established activities that include Art, Cookery, Swimming, Trampolining, Computing and Sensory Play.
In addition to the increase of activities we have also extended the programme to some of our day pupils. The enrichment coordinators have worked closely with class teams to identify day pupils that would benefit from these additional learning experiences, ensuring that individual young people have a personalised enrichment timetable that supports their engagement in learning and their overall development.
