Aims of Enrichment at Pleckgate High School

The aim of our enrichment programme  is to actively promote the personal development of all our pupils,  in line with the values of Pleckgate High School of Aspire and Believe, Act and Succeed.  Our Personal Development Curriculum is enhanced by our wide range of enrichment  experiences designed to support the needs and interests of all pupils at both KS3 and KS4.

In practice this means:

  • There are opportunities for pupils to develop an awareness of, and respect for, themselves and others.
  • Enrichment supports the development of positive self-esteem, which will help pupils to cope with the challenges of personal growth.
  • The wide range of activities enable pupils to be aware of the personal choices they can make and prepares them to make responsible decisions.
  • Pupils are supported by being able to explore their feelings and emotions and promote confidence in their abilities
  • Pupils are provided with opportunities to explore and question their own thoughts and feelings.
  • Pupils have meaningful encounters with both employers and Further Education providers to provide them with the right advice and guidance to help them make informed choices about their future pathways.

Research indicates that participation in extracurricular activities positively correlates with pupils’ development both academically and personally. Pupils who participate in extracurricular activities have greater academic success, greater character development, especially in the areas of time-management and leadership skills, more positive social development, and greater interest in community involvement.

At Pleckgate we continue to be committed  to ensuring ALL pupils have access to a range of activities and we will continue to consult with parents and pupils about their experiences.

Below is the schedule for the current lunchtime and after school extracurricular activities: 

Timetable: Before school/Lunchtime

“The Community of Pleckgate has a local secondary school it can be proud of.  It provides an excellent education for all its pupils. They flourish in a bright, positive and secure environment”
