Extra Curricular Activities

All of our children leave the school having experienced a wide range of activities and have the life skills they need to do well. Our extra-curricular programme is an important part of the education we offer. Each class goes on at least one educational visit a year and the older year groups participate in a residential trip to encourage independence.  We hold Easter and Christmas assemblies for KS2 in our local church and well as visiting our local mosque for visits.

Although our curriculum is very broad and gives pupils a huge range of skills, we believe it is important to offer additional activities that build pupils’ confidence, resilience and self-belief. Every child has a talent in at least one area and to develop this further, we hold sports days, curriculum enrichment days, ‘Dashwood’s Got Talent’, Inter-house singing competitions and many more.

We are proud of our diverse community and celebrate the range of cultures and beliefs. It is important to us that everyone feels welcome and involved in school life regardless of where they come from or what language they speak.

All clubs will run 3.15pm to 3.45/4.00pm. All clubs are run by a Dashwood teaching assistant or teacher and we aim to run clubs to both suit pupil interests or challenge them to try something new!
