A great many clubs and activities are organised by the staff before school, at lunchtime, after school and at weekends.
The activities are varied, exciting and challenging and include athletics, team games, choir, music groups and orchestra, computer, languages, Drama, Dance, Art and Design, Science and Technology. We are very proud of our successes as a School at every level, including some very notable regional and national championship successes. In addition, we provide opportunities for visits from school, including residential experiences, for all Years in the UK, Ireland, Denmark and France. Pupils also enjoy lots of opportunity for extension activities. The school has well understood and monitored policy for health and safety on all school visits – including undertaking thorough risk assessments.
The Arts Council Artsmark is awarded to schools in recognition of outstanding commitment to the performing and creative arts. Arts education includes the major art form of Art and Design, Dance, Drama and Music and a wide range of arts activity including Photography, Media Studies, Sculpture and Circus Skills. We are delighted to have received the highest accolade– the Gold Award – which is a tribute to the hard work of staff within the curriculum and in clubs and activities. In addition, it recognises the outstanding contributions made by the pupils.
Lincroft is part of and has achieved the nationally accredited ‘Healthy Schools’ scheme. As teachers and parents we instinctively know that learning comes easier to a healthy child. With this in mind it is also a commitment to raising standards across many areas of school activity:
- Drug and Alcohol Education
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Activity
- Sex and Relationships Education
- School Travel Plan
- Emotional Health and Well-being
We are committed to racial harmony and working towards the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard across the curriculum and school policy. All staff are involved in the ‘Embracing Diversity’ programme to secure community cohesion and equal opportunities for all.
The School Sport Partnership
Lincroft is fully involved in the national Physical Education, School Sport and Club Links strategy. Lincroft is very lucky to have a great many really committed staff that give very generously of their time for school sport outside lessons, including forging and fostering links with outside clubs. We currently hold the highly prized Sportsmark award which shows that we are exceeding its requirements.
