Aims and Ethos

Principles

  • The extra-curricular programme is an intrinsic part of supporting our School values and vision.
  • Extra-curricular activities are a fundamental aspect of pupil development, enhancing their capacity to develop interests as well as in new areas unrelated to their academic studies.
  • Students are encouraged to contribute to the school and the wider community as caring, global citizens in the spirit of our School motto “non sibi sed scholae”

Policy

  • The School will provide an ambitious co-curricular and extra-curricular programme which enriches the educational experience and contributes considerably to the personal development of each individual.
  • The School seeks to provide a wide range of opportunities for pupils of all ages and interests to take responsibility, work as part of a team, face new challenges, acquire new skills, and develop physically and creatively.
  • The School will ensure equal opportunities for all students and in those activities requiring selection will ensure a fair and unbiased process.
  • All students are encouraged to participate in at least one extra-curricular activity and should seek to challenge themselves in new environments and aspire to achieve their full potential
  • Student commitment to the co-curricular and extra-curricular programme will be monitored and evaluated and the positive outcomes will be recognised and rewarded.
  • Staff members are expected to make a valid contribution to the co-curricular and extra-curricular programme.
  • The extra-curricular will be line managed by a designated member of the SMT and evaluation will take place in coordination with the line manager and the HoD where appropriate.
  • Suggestions and proposals for starting new activities should be addressed to the designated SMT member. Such proposals will be given consideration on a wide number of points and issues before the establishment of new clubs.
