When we are young, how do we know what we will like, what interests we will have and what challenges we might want to take on? It is important that children have the chance to try things out, to get a taste of the world around them, to see and do things that they wouldn’t normally do, or go to places they wouldn’t normally go and to meet people they wouldn’t normally meet. These things are important because a world-class education is about much more than qualifications: it’s also about your character and well-being.

We develop our character from taking on challenges and pursuing our interests, by doing things that are worth doing even when they are difficult and which may not give us an immediate reward. This new ‘passport’ of activities is launched by the Education Secretary to encourage more family time and help build children’s character and resilience.

We have many enrichment activities across the curriculum that children have access to but we would also like to share this ‘Activity Passport’ that your child might like work on each year at home. You can download from the attachment below, click on the passport to open it or alternatively please pop into the school office to ask for a printed copy.
