Enrichment

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.

My son joined Unified Academy in September 2020 and it is the best educational setting for him.  As a parent, I was apprehensive about my son attending a new place, but the experience for him has been fantastic. Having had a tough time in previous schools, his attitude to attending school has been difficult. Unified Academy has changed his attitude towards school and that is thanks to the positivity of all the staff.  My son finally feels accepted and that is a great weight off my shoulders!
