Enrichment is an integral part of the school week at Ribblesdale and aims to provide our pupils with a range of skills, experiences and opportunities that they may not otherwise have, both within the National Curriculum and from home.  Just as in other lessons teachers plan lessons for our pupils to secure progress against and range of learning objectives to support the development of skills.

Enrichment has been running successfully for a number of years and we are very proud of our recent Ofsted Inspection where inspectors thought “the school’s curriculum enrichment programme is outstanding in providing students with highly-effective teaching of subject areas which interest and engage them.” We continue to deliver a diverse range of activities that pupils are experiencing on Wednesday afternoons from Volunteering in the Community to First Aid Courses and many opportunities to improve in fitness, debating and enterprise skills.

We are well supported by our local community with involvement from Blackburn Rovers, Blackburn College, Waddow Hall, Crossfit, Roefield, Ribble Valley Tennis Centre, Mrs Bead and many more in the local area.

Please take a look at the pictures of enrichment and check our social media sites for weekly enrichment updates.
