At Bampton C of E Primary School, we provide children with a wide range of enrichment opportunities and activities as they progress through their education that further enrich and enhance our C360 curriculum and Character Education programme.
Our Character Education programme provides children with weekly enrichment projects, enabling them to experience learning in a ‘real life’ context to develop their personal growth and understand how they can become local and global changemakers, making a real difference to their local and wider community.

Children from Year 2 to Year 6 are given the opportunity to take part in a residential visit each year. These visits are designed to develop children's independence, increasing in length each year, whilst giving them rich experiences as they learn together about the history and geography of the world around them. From a ‘Sleepover with the sharks’ at Plymouth Aquarium in Year 2, to a 4 day residential in Year 6, experiencing the sights and history of London and some of it’s incredible museums, navigating their way around the London Underground and experiencing a guided tour around the Houses of Parliament, these residentials are extremely rich content and develop children’s sense of belonging to wider society and encourage them to become inspiring global changemakers.
Throughout their school life, children at Bampton School are provided with a wide range of opportunities of enrichment. Whether they be sports, artistic or community activities, these enrichment opportunities aim to celebrate every child's uniqueness, whilst challenging them
