Our February half term aspiration programme was extremely well received by students today but it wouldn’t be possible without our fantastic team of staff giving up time to run the sessions. Our Easter programme will be launched this Friday!

Youngsters encouraged to "be courageous"

Youngsters encouraged to "be courageous"

Posted: 20th November 2019

Young people are being encouraged to be courageous through a programme of enrichment activities.

The student leadership team at Epping St John’s Church of England School are leading a campaign to get their peers to broaden their horizons.

The Be Courageous enrichment programme is seeing lunchtime and after school clubs expanding to give students a wider variety of activities to get involved in.

Sarah Viccars, senior assistant headteacher, said: “We feel quite strongly about helping students to find their home in school; the place where they feel the most comfortable. That might be performing arts or sport, writing or the ecological green team. Beyond the classroom, we want children to try things they might not get the chance to within the curriculum. We are saying ‘give things a try, you might like them’. That’s why we are calling it Be Courageous, as we want them to step outside of their comfort zone.

“We want every child to know where their home is and where they belong.”

It is hoped students will attend at least one club – including film, football debating, show choir and ukulele - each week.

Miss Viccars said: “The uptake has been huge. At our board game club alone, 50 students are turning up at lunchtime.”
