Primary enrichment programme at Exeter University

An enrichment programme for pupils in KS2, offering opportunities to attend courses across a range of national curriculum subjects

The Primary Enrichment Programme at the University of Exeter provides one and two day courses for Key Stage Two pupils across a range of national curriculum subjects.

The project aims to engage with pupils who demonstrate interest and skills within specific subject areas, these pupils will have been identified by their teachers or perhaps parents, if it is an out of school activity. The university aims to encourage participation from those in receipt of Pupil Premium, or eligible for free school meals as well as children from low income families. The aim is to widen participation and raise pupils' aspirations in context outside of the classroom. We hope that pupils will meet like-minded peers and develop a further passion and understanding for their subject, which can be developed further back in school and the home.

The programme is very successful and has been running since 2007 in collaboration with Bath and Plymouth Universities, and solely since 2010 at the University of Exeter. We have seen thousands of children enjoying specialist days such as Taiko Drumming, 3D Art,  Poetry and Maths using Graphics Calculators and in doing so developing new understandings and aspirations.

Details about this term's programme will be available soon. Examples can be seen in Autumn term enrichment programme 2017 ‌brochure.
