As part of their formal education at Redmoor Academy, all students in
KS3 are required to complete three Enrichment Courses, one each
academic year. Our programme gives students the opportunity to
engage more in local, national and international studies.
We are delighted therefore, to present details of our exciting new look
Redmoor Enrichment Course (REC), formally Active Learning
Programme, for the academic year 2016-2017.
This year there are 16 courses available, giving our students a
wide variety from which to make their choice. Some of the courses
are fully-residential, while others are part-residential and part school-
based. Also, there are wholly school-based courses that consist of a
series of “school day”opportunities. Each is designed to extend a
student’s knowledge, skills and understanding in addition to enhancing the personal development of every individual who takes part. The aim is for students to: have an opportunity to gain independence, a chance to meet new people, discover who they actually are, test what they believe they can do and ultimately, return to Redmoor after the experience feeling more confident, skilled and enriched.
It’s here! Our annual REC week has begun and we’re pleased to announce the safe arrival of all of our residential trips. For daily updates, please check our Twitter page to see what our students are getting up to this week #TeamRedmoor!
There is an important meeting for students that are going on a residential trip this year for REC. All parents and carers are invited to attend on 7th June at Redmoor beginning at 6.30pm, information will be given out about the week and you will have a chance to meet staff attending the trips. There will also be the opportunity to have any questions answered.
Students will receive a letter with further information about the evening the week commencing 15th May. We look forward to meeting so many of you in preparation for this exciting week.
Update 31/10/16: Students have received their options!
We would like to confirm that every student has been given one of their three options and students have received a letter to confirm their option. This gives details about the course, including payment schedules. Please see below, copies of these letters if you need to access them at any point.
We would like to remind you that as the activities take place predominantly within school hours, there is no legal obligation for full-contribution payments. It would however, be impossible for the school to fully finance those activities that incur a cost. Therefore, we ask that you support us with those courses, otherwise that element of the programme may not be able to proceed.
Where appropriate and beneficial, the academy contracts external providers to deliver some programmes of study and therefore, all deposits are non-refundable and instalment deadlines must be met. In certain circumstances, Redmoor Academy may be able to help students financially. Further advice about this can be sought from Mrs Jane Sulley, Business Manager.
Should you wish to discuss any other aspect of the programme of study offered as part of our Enrichment Course, you should either contact Mrs Stanhope or Mr Jarvis on 01455 230731.
