The Enrichment programme at Bedford Modern School aims to develop in students the soft skills that will enhance their school experience generally and also provide them with the aptitudes to thrive in the wider world beyond school. The programme is enriching in and of itself, but also facilitates a greater engagement with other things, be they academic, co-curricular or non-school related.
The Enrichment programme is designed to ensure that there is no duplication of content with the PSHEE offer or the Careers scheme; indeed the aim of the Enrichment programme is that it complements and supports these provisions.
Students have timetabled Enrichment slots which comprise a mixture of whole-year group sessions with outside providers, smaller group sessions in the year common room, and tutor group sessions in tutor rooms. Some of the topics covered include motivation, concentration, character education, sleep, diet and exercise, and critical thinking skills.
