Extra Curricular Activities
Here at the Skegness Academy we want to ensure the students have the best possible chance to achieve their potential and provide our pupils with an opportunity to have enriching experiences beyond the normal school day. This is called the Extracurricular Activities programme (ECA).
There are many benefits of offering ECA's to pupils. Firstly, pupils are being exposed to new and exciting experiences. They get the opportunity to work with different staff and pupils from across the school and discover what they are good at and what they are interested in, which can help them determine their career path later in their school life. As various studies have discovered, pupils who are involved in ECA's tend to do better in academics and learn to use time management appropriately. Taking on an ECA can build students’ self-esteem, help set goals for their future and promote teamwork.
We expect all students to take a full and active role in all aspects of school life. We endeavour to support all students to develop the skills and confidence needed to challenge themselves, and make the most of what is on offer.
All participants of a sporting activity are expected to wear appropriate clothing like their PE kit. No normal school clothes are allowed.
When a pupil signs up for an activity, it is vital to be aware of the commitment expected from them. The expectation is that once a pupil has signed up they are to attend the activity for its entirety.
If circumstances prevent pupils from continuing or coming to an activity, we ask you to inform the ECA co-ordinater.
Pupils will be expected to behave in line with the Academy’s Behavioural Policy. If pupils do not behave in an appropriate manor they may be removed from the ECA. If a pupil becomes ill we will contact parents.
Transport will be provided to pupils who live outside of the Skegness area. This is to support students who catch a school bus and would not normally be able to participate in after school activities. Requests are made on the ECA's letters.
ECA for the next academic year
The development of the ECA has been supported through an option process by all year 7 and year 8 pupils. This is to ensure pupils have activities they want to participate in, making them more purposeful for the pupils.
Below are some of the activities that could take place.
- Hair and beauty
- Advanced dancing
- Rock climbing
- First aid
- Skate park/roller skating
- Cheer leading
