Cultural Capital Vision for Enrichment

Hampton High’s vision is that:

Every student, every year, has the opportunity to be involved in at least one new experience outside of the classroom. These opportunities range from lunch time and after school clubs, subject specific trips, residential trips and enrichment opportunities. All of these aim to support students in linking their learning to the wider world, encourage them to be investigative and independent learners, acquire the soft skills needed in life after school and develop a love and respect for the different cultures and world they live in.

*Whilst the school is managing social distancing, bubbling in year groups and staggered starts, there are a number of changes to how we run our extracurricular and enrichment opportunities, including trips and other visit based experiences.

In order to provide students with opportunities and experiences outside of the classroom, we will be running virtual clubs after school through Microsoft Teams. We are looking to expand this provision throughout the term.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer KS4 after school clubs due to the later finish for students and staff.

Trips and residential visits have been suspended for the time being, however, we will aim to re-establish these at the first possible opportunity.

There is a programme of online opportunities being developed for students, for example, the Speakers for Schools talks with a variety of industry professionals, available to access through Satchel and the website.

We are working alongside providers of qualifications such as Duke of Edinburgh, The Brilliant Club and Mock trails so that we can continue to provide them to our students in a virtual, socially distanced and safe environment.

This means that:

Staff, both teaching and non-teaching, will provide extracurricular opportunities for students in a variety of different ways that complement their main teaching subject or interest.

Subject areas will provide at least one extracurricular opportunity a year to each year group in their subject. This may include an educational visit, a speaker coming into school, a drop down day or weekly/fortnightly club. Our 3-year goal is that each subject runs at least one drop down day once a year.

Year group teams will offer a residential trip each year with an aim to build relationships and experiences that young people in the year group may not have had previously.

Tutors will monitor the participation of tutees in extracurricular opportunities, with a 3-year goal that all Key stage 3 students will participate in at least one club each term.

Training courses, for example first aid, will be arranged and offered to students across a range of years and areas of need, led by the pastoral team and Heads of Year so that students can develop other skills needed in life after school.

Heads of Year, along with the AAHT and Enrichment lead will be responsible for ensuring that there are opportunities for the students to fulfill the pledge (see below) that they sign at the start or year 7.

Hampton High’s Pledge:

*Due to changes within the school day, some of the statements within the pledge are to be suspended for the time being. We will endeavor to still provide chances for students to experience each of these opportunities once social distancing measure are relaxed and it is safe to do so.
