Enrichment Opportunities

Useful Information

Cultural capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours, and skills that a child can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients a learner will draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work. The enrichment opportunities we provide at Annecy look to build up this cultural capital, which in turn will promote social mobility and success in society and in life.

We recognise that for children to aspire and be successful academically, and in the wider areas of their lives, they need to be given rich and sustained opportunities to develop their cultural capital.

Wild Beach

Reconnecting learners and their marine environment is at the heart of our Wild Beach ethos. Living so close to the sea is the perfect space to learn with easy access.

At Annecy Catholic Primary School, we recognise the vital importance of promoting and understanding of the natural world and see the Wild Beach programme as an ideal medium for delivery.

We would like to thank the Sussex Wildlife Trust for their continued support in enabling us to deliver this inspirational educational opportunity.

Forest School

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experience in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and complements the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.

The ethos is shared by thousands of trained practitioners across the UK and beyond and we are delighted to have our very own Level 3 Forest School Practitioner.

The roots of Forest School reach back to early years pioneers in outdoor learning and across the sea to Scandinavia.

At Forest School all participants are viewed as:

  • equal, unique, valuable
  • competent to explore and discover
  • entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge
  • entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development
  • entitled to experience regular success
  • entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people
  • entitled to develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world 

The learner-centred approach interweaves with the ever-changing moods and marvels, potential and challenges of the natural world through the seasons to fill every Forest School session and programme with discovery and difference. 

Eco Council
Annecy is a Silver Award Eco School. Our Eco Council work really hard to decide how best to reduce our impact on the environment, through a reduction in the use of single use plastic and paper waste, to cutting down the amount of electricity we use across the school. They have also been instrumental in setting up our School Garden and in proposing a school allotment.
