Getting to ‘know our children well’ is not only about how we work in class, here at Carr Manor Community School we have introduced Flexible Learning and Further Learning to offer opportunities for pupils to develop skills outside of the classroom.
Flexible Learning incorporates enrichment activities, intervention opportunities, sports teams and home learning.
In the Primary Phase, there are a range of Flexible Learning clubs aimed at engaging our pupils in physical activity; pupils especially enjoy using the indoor climbing wall and astro pitch in the Secondary Phase. Other clubs also include Lego, cooking, Zumba and science.
In the Secondary Phase, over 100 sessions are run each week, from traditional sports such as football, athletics and cricket; to sign language, mindfulness, global change, hair and beauty and several dance clubs.
Other aspects of Flexible Learning include trips off site to places such as Leeds Golf Centre at Wike Ridge, guest speakers in school, accredited awards like Duke of Edinburgh, parental and community activities and academic intervention during school holidays and weekends, so pupils have many chances to pursue what they enjoy and need to achieve.
Primary Phase pupils can join specific clubs depending on the key stage they're in. Parent/carers are individually told which Flexible Learning clubs their child can attend.
Secondary Phase pupils can go to different clubs throughout the year, depending on availability. Please find below the Secondary Phase Flexible Learning booklet for Autumn 2.
