Super Learning Days

Super Learning Days are whole days when students are taken off their traditional timetable and given deep learning opportunities.

Aims of Enrichment and SLDs at Pleckgate High School

The aim of Enrichment and SLDs are to provide opportunities for students to develop in line with the values of Pleckgate High School: Aspire and Believe, Act and Succeed. In practice this means:

  • There are opportunities for students to develop an awareness of, and respect for, themselves and others throughout our SRE day. It aids the development of positive self-esteem, which will help pupils to cope with the challenges of personal growth. It enables students to be aware of the personal choices they can make and prepares them to make responsible decisions. It is about exploring feelings and emotions and enjoying confidence in one’s own ability.
  • We provide chances for students to explore and question their own thoughts and feelings. This is enhanced further through our PREVENT days which are in line with the 2015 revised Prevent non-statutory policy. As a school we work in partnership with Blackburn with Darwen Local Authority who deliver sessions not only to pupils but to staff.
  • We give students the opportunity to engage with employers and further education providers to ensure future generations will benefit from quality, meaningful interactions that help them understand the links between courses, skills and the pathways they open up.
