Enrichment & Extra-Curricular
At John Masefield, we know how important it is to develop students’ experience of the world, cultural capital, character and sense of adventure. For this reason, John Masefield follow an enrichment programme that supports and develops their character in line with our expectations of students, which is to aspire to be the best we can be. In order to empower them to become happy and successful in life, education and employment.
If your young person would like to take part in any of these free and exciting opportunities, then please sign up your child via MCAS. We are no longer using Schoolcloud to register students for enrichment clubs and a guide to signing your child up to a club using MCAS can be found attached. You will be able to sign your child up to a club and activity from 3pm on Friday 10 November.
Activities and clubs which are after school, will require students to meet the club coordinator at their enrichment point in the Bus Park, this is where they will be collected by a staff member and escorted to the location their club will be held. The enrichment points are at the back of the bus park.
Furthermore, if your child would like to participate in a sports club then they should bring their PE kit to school, where they will have the opportunity to change.
In the event a club or activity is cancelled, a message will be sent to all parents/guardians via MCAS and students will be informed at their earliest convenience. In the event students are unable to make travel arrangements, we ask students to head straight to Student Services where contact will be made with their parent or carer. If contact cannot be made, Homework Club will host students until they are able to access their transport.
All clubs and activities will start on Monday 13 November 2023, and students will be able to participate in these until Friday 15 December 2023. In addition, there will be no clubs or activities on Wednesday 15 November 2023 and Thursday 14 December 2023 due to staff training afternoons.
There will be a variety of different activities throughout the Spring and Summer term as part of the enrichment programme and students will be informed of these new and exciting opportunities later in the year.
