SWIPE

SWIPE

(Students Working In Pursuit of Excellence)

A SWIPE is an enrichment activity that runs alongside the normal timetable. They can take place at our school, at one of our local schools or an excursion to a place related to that curriculum area. Each SWIPE activity will be designed to meet the needs of it’s target group. This could be  more able and highly motivated pupils, or pupils who are on the SEND list. Any child may be invited to take part in a SWIPE.

Pupils will be invited to take part in a SWIPE by the relevant teacher.

Possible SWIPE’s are; gallery or museum visits, pyramid school activities, entrance to competitions or exhibitions, group challenges but this list is not exhaustive.
