Enrichment & 11 Before 11

Providing enriched experiences for all of the children at Five Spires Academy is at the heart of our curriculum. From Nursery until a child leaves at 11, our children are provided with a multitude of enriched opportunities as part of their daily diet.  These range from visitors, to trips to residential experience as well as cultural celebrations arranged across the school year ensuring cultural appreciation and diversity.

As enrichment is so important to us at Five Spires Academy, we provide a number of after school clubs each night for all to attend. 

11 Before 11

11 Before 11 is an exciting, new concept for Springhill Academy. REAch2 now have a trust-wide enrichment programme that aims to offer all pupils 11 amazing experiences before they leave primary school. Each year group will have the opportunity to complete at least one of the promises that children will experience by the time they turn 11. These include:


  1. 10 good deeds

  2. Create something amazing

  3. Cross a border

  4. Flashmob

  5. Hiking heros

  6. Make or break a REAch2 Record

  7. Messing about on the water

  8. Ride something huge

  9. Seeds to supper

  10. Shake it up Shakespeare

  11. Sleep under the stars

All of the promises support character trait development outlined in the DFE document ‘Promoting fundamental British Values’:

  • Neighbourliness and community spirit

  • Tolerance and respect

  • Motivation, drive and ambition

  • Perseverance, resilience and grit

  • Honesty, integrity and dignity

  • Conscientiousness, curiosity and focus

  • Confidence and optimism

This year, the staff and children have been working incredibly hard to fulfil a promise for each year group. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled on the website, Facebook and Twitter pages for regular updates!
