The Basildon Academies


Leaders want pupils to experience things at school that they might not do otherwise. Ofsted 2019

All students engage in an enrichment of their choice each day as part of their curriculum. The enrichment session takes place for 30 minutes each day, forming an essential part of our core curriculum. Enrichment sessions run daily for Year 7, 8 & 9 from 2.30 – 3.00pm. We recognise the power and impact that quality enrichment can have on young lives and minds.

Our enrichment programme is an essential and valuable part of our school day. The age appropriate enrichment model supports a ‘Passion for Learning’ in Key Stage 3, a ‘Passion for Purpose’ in Key Stage 4 and a ‘Passion for Life’ in Key Stage 5.

The enrichment opportunities are student choice. The programme has been set up to support and positively impact:

  • Student resilience
  • Self-esteem
  • Passion for learning
  • Sense of belonging
  • The ability to stretch & challenge
  • Equity of opportunity
  • Broad experiences and frames of reference
  • Employability skills
  • Student cultural and social mobility
  • Motivation of ‘hard to reach’ students
