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

Aims of Enrichment and Super Learning Days at Pleckgate High School

The aim of Enrichment and Super Learning Days (SLD) are to provide additional opportunities for students to develop as rounded individuals, in line with the values of Pleckgate High School: Aspire and Believe, Act and Succeed.

Super Learning Days are in addition to the taught Personal Development curriculum and offer flexible enrichment opportunities that allow us to respond to the needs of our students and build upon the taught curriculum.

In practice this means:

  • There are opportunities for students to develop an awareness of, and respect for, themselves and others throughout our SLD days.
  • These enhancement days support the development of positive self-esteem, which will help pupils to cope with the challenges of personal growth.
  • The wide range of activities enable students to be aware of the personal choices they can make and prepares them to make responsible decisions.
  • SLD days help students to explore their feelings and emotions and promote confidence in one’s own ability.
  • We also 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.

“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”
