William Booth Primary is fully committed to providing pupils with a wide range of exciting enrichment and learning opportunities that serve as invaluable stimuli. Despite the current financial position of the school it has been really important to have created the appropriate budget to support such experiences. All pupils in all classes have access to at least 1 trip per term with the transport completely funded by the school budget. The following are examples of such opportunities accessed by pupils:

As previously mentioned the above opportunities and experiences are key to developing what we call the conditions for learning. All pupils need and deserve rich first hand learning experiences. In addition, they support our aims to develop an intrinsic motivation within our pupils to learn whilst incentivising behaviour that meets our expectations and develops an even more positive view of school. Residential provision is outstanding and is so well received by the pupils. The use of the Pupil Premium to offer places for £20 has ensured take up from as many children as possible.
