There are many opportunities for pupils to develop their social, moral, spiritual and cultural skills in learning outside the classroom activities. (LOTC) These experiences help to build confidence, self-belief that they will make progress, engages the pupils in learning, provides memorable learning experiences and applies learning in a real life context.
There are planned visits to local shops, forests, other local schools, nature reserves, museums and places of worship, to name a few, all of which help to develop the all-round child.
In Year 5, the pupils have the opportunity to further develop their relationship and social skills during a residential visit to Malvern Outdoor Elements. This follows on from Outdoor and Adventurous Activities lessons which pupils participate in from Reception through to Year 6 where team work, communication and other social skills are developed.
