Theme Days

The purpose of the Theme Days is to give our pupils experiences outside of the normal curriculum. The themes are decided each year based on the needs of our pupils at that particular time. For example, a Diversity theme day was planned and delivered to enable the pupils to better understand different cultures.

Our aims:

  • To provide experiences and other opportunities beyond the classroom to develop the identified needs in the pupil’s EHCP’s.
  • To provide opportunities to develop and further establish relationships with staff so that the pupils are more confident, comfortable and secure to enable them to feel safe enough to ‘make mistakes without fear of reprise, which enables learning.
  • To acknowledge success and achievement beyond classroom learning.

The planned Theme Days for 2023/2024 are as follows:

  • World Environment
