Dear Parents/Carers

Module 5 – Extracurricular Programme

Extracurricular activities offer opportunities for our students to develop a broad range of skills. Activities outside of the classroom enable students to apply skills they have learned in the classroom, develop a sense of belonging in the Academy and improve engagement in learning. Research over many years has found that extracurricular activities have a positive impact on students and their progress. It is an opportunity for students to develop interests, teamwork and self-responsibility.

The Academy’s Extracurricular Programme compliments our curriculum and is also shaped by Student Voice, with students consulted on the type of activities they would like to participate in. This year we have provided students with over 50 extracurricular activities linked to the Academy’s central and wider curriculum offer, mirroring the excellent practice noted by Ofsted in the Academy’s recent inspection. 

You and your child can access the growing number of extracurricular clubs via our SOCS Co-Curricular Website, which provides us with a comprehensive monitoring system to track students’ participation in all extracurricular activities. Registers for all clubs are taken on this platform. All clubs take place on the school site and students are escorted by staff to the front gate at the end of their session.

By signing your child up for a club, you agree that they will adhere to all our usual Academy safety and behaviour policies. Please ensure your child is willing to commit to attending all the sessions provided in this module as numbers in some clubs will be limited.

For further information on how to access these clubs, please follow this link to our SOCS Co-Curricular Website. A helpful guide for parents can be accessed here. If you need support accessing your child’s login details, please email your child’s Small School and they will be happy to help. 

Yours faithfully,
Miss H. Panton | Deputy Head of Turing School
