Wellbeing and Enrichment Days

Wellbeing Days planned for 2018- 2019 onwards:

When the normal lesson timetable is suspended, these take place during the year.  These days allow students to learn in different ways such as off site, with external providers and a range of students.   These days cover subjects such as Staying Safe, British Values, Study Skills, Pathways and Work-related learning. This is part of our planned curriculum but may involve other providers such as Spark for Life and wider university and work placement opportunities.

We also have a programme of upcoming events throughout the academic year these include:

  • Queen Mary Workshop – (SPITE – Sharing/Publishing Images To Embarrass) Legalities in Sharing Images over Social media
  • Hate Crime Workshops
  • Jack Petchey Workshops – Student Voice/Speech writing
  • Careers Trips x 2
  • Swimming programme
  • Visits to London Museums

Enrichment Days planned for 2018- 2019 onwards:

Here at Burnside Secondary School PRU we are committed to delivering high quality enrichment activities.

We are currently delivering AQA Unit Awards which allow students to gain vocational and academic certificates recognising the the work standards they have achieved. We will be using these awards to allow our pupils to experience a wide range of subjects including Horticulture, Arts & Crafts, Cookery and outdoor learning.

We have also been able to secure placements at various off-site courses including Horticulture and bike maintenance at The Higham Hill Park Hub. The students have enjoyed these courses immensely, particularly in relation to future careers.

We also provide a wide range of educational and vocational visits as well as leisure visits. We have a good mix of visits planned throughout the year these include Theatre trips, Science trips, Careers fairs and Sporting events.

Recently our pupils were invited to visit the Plaistow Custody Suite, 350 Romford Road, London. The purpose of the visit was for students to experience how a custody suite works and to experience how a court room operates. This was linked to learning in their mentoring sessions and our drive to improve students ability to safeguard themselves and others.
