What is 11b411?
Reach2 have a trust-wide enrichment programme that aims to offer all pupils 11 amazing experiences before they leave school.
At St Margaret's Primary Academy we have been working hard on incorporating more and more of the 11 promises each year, so that all children attending our school get to experience these wonderful, exciting adventures.
Year on year we have added more promises to our school curriculum and can now say we can offer all 11 promises to St Margaret's Primary Academy children before they leave year 6.
Life is an adventure - and school should be too
It is essential that our children can read, write and add up to the level that you would expect for their age, but at SMPA, school always has been about so much more.
Think back – what do you remember about your primary school days? Was it phonics lessons or learning how to do long division? Or was it a brilliant school trip where you camped under the stars? Or built a raft and crossed a lake? Or built and launched rockets from the playground?
These types of great opportunity – the memorable experiences that cement themselves into your psyche – happen in every school. What’s different for us is that we consciously codify it into a set of promises so that it becomes something that EVERY child is entitled to.
And “11 before 11” is the way we do this; it’s a set of promises that help our children to be in the driving seat in their own lives. We are ambitious for our children to have broad horizons in life and high aspirations for themselves. We want our children to be inspired and challenged so that each one can develop their unique potential to the full.
11 before 11 takes our children beyond the usual, to open opportunities in life and inspire them to move forward in their own life’s adventure. We are incredibly proud of “11 before 11”. We will continue to invest in delivering it, so that every child’s experience of school with us is exceptional and memorable for all the right reasons.
