Enrichment

Enriching experiences for all our children

Woven into the fabric of a Crosfields education the Enrichment Programme aims to challenge students, giving them the opportunity to try new things but most importantly, encouraging them to develop as individuals.

At Crosfields we recognise that as children grow, develop and progress they need to be provided with activities which are both age appropriate and engaging.

It all begins from Pre-Prep as children start to explore the world around them and these activities are expanded as children progress through the Junior School.

By the time they reach our Senior School we provide dynamic real-world challenges to prepare them to be productive global citizens, appreciating the opportunities which lie ahead and preparing them for future successes.

Inclusive and accessible opportunities

Children are given dedicated time to devote to developing their research and presentation skills.

Activities are carefully selected and designed to promote skills in the following areas:

  • Personal : leadership, communication , performance, creativity, decision-making, co-operation, time management and organisational.
  • Social
  • Wellbeing – stress relief and relaxation, keeping healthy and developing increased self-esteem

Gaining Awards and recognition

There are a number of awards that pupils can participate in during their time at Crosfields School. Awards allow pupils to strengthen their presentation skills, widen their knowledge outside of the curriculum and enable confidence in their own abilities. Here are some of the awards, your child could be part of:

Ian Michael Award

Providing the chance to be part of our history.

Originally designed to encourage children at Crosfieldsto go beyond study and collaborate with their peers. As the school has grown, so the award has evolved.

In pursuit of the Award children are challenged to create a presentation based on a topic they have covered within the curriculum (complementing their studies). We now ask pupils to present to families on any topic of their choice. This encourages thinking beyond the classroom walls and sharing of personal interests which have captured their imagination.

The format of the Award allows current interests to be considered in context, whilst capturing the spirit of Crosfields School over time.

John Muir Award

The John Muir Award is focused on supporting the natural environment and promoting biodiversity.

The Mighty Oak

The Mighty Oak programme is designed for the Senior School students to encourage them to broaden their range of interests and then develop and explore some of them in more detail. The aim is to challenge students to choose activities outside of their comfort zone and help them gain a wider perspective and develop as individuals. There are 5 principles which underpin this programme:

  1. Personal skills such as leadership and communication
  2. Time management and organisational skills
  3. Stress relief and relaxation
  4. Improved social skills
  5. Increased self-esteem
