King Solomon’s extended school hours enable us to provide students with a range of enrichment activities. Some enrichment activities will be optional, others will be compulsory, depending on the needs of the child which will be discussed with the parents. Enrichment activities include:
At King Solomon, enrichment activities will be run outside standard teaching time and students will be encouraged to take full advantage of activities offered. We are meeting with a range of extra curricular providers to develop a rich and diverse range of activities available to our students. We would also love to hear your suggestions on the type of activities and clubs you would like to see at our school.
The lunchtime club will provide students with a variety of activities to participate in during lunchtime. Every student will be encouraged to learn a musical instrument at some stage in their school life at King Solomon as this creates a sense of discipline and music appreciation beyond their cultural setting.
After school club
For Primary pupils, whose teaching day finishes at 15.30, we offer a wrap-around provision for students including breakfast club and afterschool clubs at subsidised rates. Please contact school to find out about our wrap-around provision.
School holiday programme
The school operates a 42 week (210 days) school year. This increase in contact time of an additional 20 days (4 weeks) compared to the 190 standard days is important for giving pupils the best opportunity of success. We also provide enrichment activities outside teaching time. These include:
- School holiday programme – a one week programme during the summer holiday period.
- King Solomon will consult on the school calendar on a yearly basis but intends to operate the normal 3 terms per annum to fit in with the Local Authority’s holiday pattern and minimize disruption to parents and teachers with pupils in other local schools.
- King Solomon will operate on a normal 5 days per week basis for 3 terms per year.
