Beyond The Classroom
At The Rissington School we believe that learning is not just confined to the classroom, and does not just take place in lessons! We embrace the fact that we are all learners - adults and children alike - and aim to instil in our pupils and families a lifelong love of learning from all situations.
To this end, we actively plan to extend learning into the outside environments (Learning Outside the Classroom), and provide a range of enhanced learning activities to bring the curriculum to life (Trips, visits, extra-curricular clubs). After consultation with parents and pupils, we have recently updated our homework policy - which included renaming it to 'home learning' to raise its profile and make it more positive.
