Learning and Living Together

Enrichment / Engagement / Extended Schools Activities

At Cale Green we carefully plan a range of additional enrichment and engagement activities for children and their families to take part in throughout the year. These give the children important first-hand experiences and they also bring subjects to life, providing real interest, memorable experiences, enthusiasm and motivation for learning and school life. This in turn helps us to raise standards. It does mean a lot of extra hard work for staff and I would like to say thank you to them all for the extra that they do, and the commitment they show, to the children of Cale Green.
