Enrichment and Extension
A key feature of the Grant’s Braes School curriculum, that broadens and sustains our students’ learning, is the provision of a range of enrichment and extension programmes.
Enrichment programmes are fun, diverse opportunities that are sourced by either teachers, outside agencies, community members, specialist events or competitions. Extension programmes are similar, but offer extra support above what is delivered within the classroom in areas in which students excel.
These opportunities may occur daily, weekly, termly or yearly. They may be planned and ongoing, or designed to respond rapidly to the developing priorities and strengths of individual students or groups of students.

- To enhance and extend children in an area they show an interest in. The children, at times, have a ‘voice’ and put themselves forward for these opportunities.
- To extend and challenge the learning of a child. Students do not choose to be part of an extension group as this must be determined by the classroom teacher based on academic performance.
