Enriching The Curriculum 

At Manor Park we enrich the curriculum (beyond the national curriculum and EYFS framework), offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities and enrichment opportunities for all of our pupils. This ensures that every child is able to access the broad and balanced, exciting and engaging curriculum on offer. We believe that school is about so much more than learning how to read and write and we endeavour to provide our pupils with opportunities that they may not have exposure to in everyday life and to realise new passions, strengths and talents. 


Express and Share assemblies happen once a year in each year group where the children have an opportunity to share their learning with their parents and carers and also parents are invited into the class afterwards to experience a learning activity with their child.

Lyfta or SEAL based assemblies allow pupils to explore and discuss themes based around the social and emotional aspects of learning as well as the development of essential skills such as diversity, self belief and resilience.

RE visitors assemblies include regular visits from the Church and assemblies to celebrate a wide range of religious festivals including Dvali and Eid. 


A very wide range of before and after school clubs are on offer free of charge to the children, for example coding, maths, sports and film clubs. We also work with outside agencies to provide additional opportunities for the children, with activities such as gymnastics, basketball and street damce. Fees are paid directly to the club provider. Through these clubs, we want our pupils to have opportunities to support their wellbeing, learn new skills, develop self-belief and self-confidence, and have fun!

Sports Opportunities and Events 

Sports events are attended frequently, such as the borough sports athletics event, football matches, korfball, panathlon and netball matches. In addition, all children take part in a sports morning which is attended by parents and carers. The children receive visits from inspiring atheltes, for example Nerys Pearce and Aaron Lucas.

Leo Active Citizens 

Children have ppportunities to take part in School Council and contribute to pupil voice within the school, helping to make decisions. We plan opportunities for the children to be active citizens in the local community as well as the global community. We have supported a range of charities and initiatives for example St Raphael’s Rudolph Run, Macmillian and Children in Need.

Trips, Workshops and Visitors

A wide range of trips,workshops and visitors are planned throughout the year linked to the different learning projects. For example during ‘Magnificent Monarchs’ Year 2 visit Hampton Court Palace, Year 6 visit the British Museum as part of their topic ‘Maafa’ and Year 5 has a specialised workshop to enhance their learning of the Shang Dynasty during their ‘Dynamic Dynasties’ project. 

Workshops also take place linked to the project for half term as are visitors who can inspire the children and provide their learning with a real context. Visits to places of worship are also planned for all year groups to include a range (churches, mosques, temples) where children are able to enhance their learning in lessons and apply and develop their knowledge in a real context.

Global Learning

Children participate in a range of activities such as international awareness days to build their role as a global citizen. Examples include: World Ocean Day and Fairtrade fortnight.

Music Opportunities and Events 

Our children experience a wide variety of musical activities including performing, composing, listening and appraising. This is achieved by playing and singing, performing with others, composing and arranging, listening to and appraising musical styles from all cultures, developing ideas of notation and using music as a means of self expression. For example, Year 4 children particiapte in a Musical Extravaganza and Year 6 produce an end of Year performance. 

The children experience whole class ensemble tuition from specialist music teachers for brass and drumming as well as having the opportunity for individual instrumental tuition with peripatetic teachers for both piano and guitar.
