Outside of the timetabled day, children are provided with an opportunity to participate in a great number of activities from sport to the creative arts, from magic to cookery. Children can remain at school to complete their homework if required. Equally, if parents are running late or simply have a work commitment, children are able to attend the After School Care facility where they can relax, play with lego, paint or play outside with their friends.
Whatever activities we choose to engage in on a co-curricular level, no examination will acknowledge the skills and assets these wider elements generate. Many children are ‘iced out’ of education as their wider interests and practical skills can never be acknowledged by the exam system. Let us therefore, continue to recognise and celebrate the many diverse accomplishments that Longacre children achieve.
