Wider School Curriculum

At Park End Primary School, we believe in extending the pupils’ education far beyond the classroom walls. The wider school curriculum are opportunities we provide in or out of school that enhance the taught curriculum. Below are some of the ways in which we develop and enrich the lives of our pupils click the sections to find out more.

Charity

A central part of our ethos is that we aim to inspire caring, compassionate and empathetic children ready to face life’s challenges and understand global issues.

The pupils and staff at Park End Primary, organise several activities across the year to raise funds for a variety of local, national and international charities. Supporting charities and people in the local community raises awareness of key issues and teaches our children about the importance of generosity. We feel this reflects our school values of ‘caring, responsibility and positivity’.  

The school council plays a pivotal role in listening to pupil’s ideas, selecting charities, discussing ideas and planning fundraising events. The pupils, parents and staff of Park End Primary School support a variety of charities throughout the school year.

  • Ukraine Crisis – Pupils dressed in blue and yellow to show their support for those in crisis in Ukraine.  Money raised was donated to aid humanitarian work.
  • Children in Need – Pupils donated and came to school dressed in their Pyjamas
  • Red Nose Day – Pupils had their noses painted and wore a red item of clothing in support of comic relief
  • Poppy Appeal – We raised money in support of the Royal British Legion appeal through the sale of poppies
  • Caring for the Community – school council sold ice-lollies to raise money to buy blankets for elderly residents in the local community
  • Eco Shop – school council prepare food parcels to support parents in the local community

In addition to our regular fund-raising events, we have non-uniform days to raise money for various charities

Careers

At Park End Primary, we recognise the important role that is played by primary schools in enabling children to have high aspirations about their future. As a school, we endeavour to provide children with a range of meaningful experiences, visits and visitors that teach them about the world of work and provide information about future careers. We also aim to break down any misconceptions or stereotypes our pupils may have about different careers.

During lessons, pupils are exposed to the world of work through learning about careers in the STEM field and beyond. We encourage pupils to develop their interests and ignite any passion they may have for a subject, e.g. becoming a sculptor or a research scientist.

Children in Upper Key Stage 2 are introduced to careers through workshops and visits.

Residentials

At Park End Primary School, we think it is important to provide pupils with experiences beyond the classroom and connect with the outdoor world. As well as the physical health benefits, school residential trips have been proven to have a positive effect on children’s self esteem and confidence levels, thereby improving their emotional health and well being. The importance of allowing children to explore their environment, take responsibility for their learning with minimal obvious adult intervention is significant. We recognise that residential trips offer a unique opportunity for our pupils to claim their independence, make their own decisions and build new friendships. 

To inspire a love of adventure that will stay with our pupils and help them develop into fit, active and healthy adults, we ensure that all pupils in Upper Key-stage Two can experience a residential visit to Robinwood. This helps our pupils to develop themselves and learn new skills alongside others within a different environment.
