The enrichment programme aims to tap into the island’s expertise to help broaden the horizons of our island’s children and enable them to challenge themselves with new experiences.
We are extremely thankful to all our enrichment volunteers for taking part in our unique enrichment programme. The programme would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of so many islanders and their involvement has a positive impact on the education of our island’s children. Thank you from all at Sark School!
The Enrichment Programme runs every weekday from Monday to Friday from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Sessions may run at Sark School or at an approved alternative location. The programme changes every half-term to ensure the pupils receive a varied enrichment. Each enrichment programme runs for a ‘block’ of 6 or 7 weeks, depending on the length of the school’s term.
Students in Class Two and Class Three at Sark School must take part in enrichment, as it forms part of their school day. These children are aged from 6 to 13 years old.
Home-educated children are also invited to take part in the enrichment programme on an optional basis.
Those home-educated children aged 6 to 13 years old may take part in the sessions in the same capacity as the Sark School pupils. Pupils older than ‘Sark School age’ are invited to take part but will assist as ‘student volunteers’, given their older age.
Before volunteers can run enrichments alone with children, we require them to undertake an enhanced criminal records check via the Disclosure and Barring Service. We also ask that all volunteers participate in the Level 1 Safeguarding Course.
Nat Craik, Cathy Roberts and Zoe Adams are the main points of contact for our enrichment programme. They can be contacted in the first instance on email@example.com.
