South Chingford Foundation’s  Enrichment and Extended School Programme 2019/20

Our ethos of ‘ambition for all’ and our mission statement of ‘being the best version of yourself’ is typified by our enrichment philosophy, we encourage every pupil from day one and even during transition to get involved with school life and the opportunities that are available to all individuals across every year group. The extended school programme has been a model of good practice across Waltham Forest since the early days of the sports college status era and it has never lost its imputes and this is due to the amazing staff who go above and beyond to promote and their subject areas beyond the class environment.

We put a great deal of emphasis on year 7 and have a dedicated Saturday school called ‘Stepping Stones’ that invites all pupils to take part in activities, trips and learning outside school hours to develop social skills and access opportunities that may not be readily available.

There are hundreds of ways to establish yourself at South Chingford and our best piece of advice is “get involved and have a go.”  We have extra-curricular events linked to every subject, from joining a sports team and representing the school to performing in one of our school shows or musical performances. You could be a member of our year councils, charity groups supporting the local community or sign up to our amazing Duke Of Edinburgh programme in year 9 and even extend yourself further with the silver award in year 10.  You could design your own games in Computer Science or chill out with board games in the library and home-learning  rooms.  And if we haven’t got a club for your interests – then let us know and we will support you in setting one up.

We run regular competitions at school; We believe in physical education that leads to healthy competition and linked to a range of subject.  We have many opportunities to represent the school proudly, from supporting at open evenings to helping out with events throughout the year.  During our ‘Drop Down Days’ throughout the year we run a Community projects , where SCFS students get out and about in the local area and help with any number of social projects, our students are well regarded by the local community for the work they do.

Students at SCFS are proud of our school and they can demonstrate this by  from supporting at open evenings leading at school events.  If you have leadership aspirations then you could join our Brilliant club, a programme that inspires young people to recognise that there is should be no boundaries too aspirations. Over 1/5th of our current whole school cohort have enrolled on the Brilliant Club over during their school career. In addition, you could join our Student  Council and help  shape how the school works.

Students will get the chance to become a peer mentor; you can specialise in a particular area of support for the school including charity work, community programmes, curriculum development, caring for the environment or school reward programmes A critical role is to help guide the future of the Year 7 students by being assigned to a year 7 in the transition programme. This role will help your peer develop confidence and help you develop leadership and role modelling skills.

South Chingford  is a  school within the Chingford Academies Trust. This Trust provides the benefit of specialists working together across the Trust to support subject and extra-curricular opportunities.  We are inclusive and work hard to ensure that every student has access  to every opportunity outside the classroom.
