At Unified Academy, we offer an enrichment curriculum which ensures all students can access a variety of extra-curricular activities in the format of bite-sized tasters, facilitated by external and internal practitioners. The offer builds on key areas of our PSHE and Well-Being programmes. These new experiences enable them to develop skills and knowledge in subjects and activities that would not normally be found in a traditional curriculum and where possible will provide evidence for achieving units towards the Ascentis Level 1 Certificate in Progression, for example:
Boxing: learning self-discipline, following instructions, developing fitness and learning tolerance of others
Sporting Chances: opportunities to work with ex-professional footballers to develop ball skills, football strategies and the ability to work with others
Introduction to hair and beauty: working with a professional beautician to develop self-care routines, personal hygiene, self-expression and aspirations for future employment
Mixed Sports: working with a professional coach to develop team working, ball skills, following instructions and tolerance of others
Creative Enterprise: working with a variety of materials to create a range of decorative items, including jewellery
ICT/Gaming: using the ICT suite to develop skills related to online and stand-alone platform gaming
E-Lego therapy: working with Lego and robotic software to build a variety of objects that will come to life once programmed
Canine Assisted Learning (CAL) – students learn how to express their emotions in a safe and supportive environment. They also develop knowledge of animal care and welfare.
Film and Media Production – Students analyse a range of film making techniques through the use of different media.
