The Friday options programme supports Health and Wellbeing in Pilrig Park School.
Each term our young people are given the opportunity to make choices about which option they would like to participate in.
Some of the options which may run throughout the year include:
- Arts/ Crafts and Enterprise
- Around Edinburgh
- French for fun
- The Yard
Staff involved take responsibility for Forward Planning their option and recording Outcomes and Experiences for each pupil once the block has finished. These options/outcomes are then recorded on each pupils Learners Journey and on their tracking document.
We have established some very good partnerships which have contributed to developing a successful programme e.g. Leith Academy, George Heriots School, Edinburgh Leisure, ‘Fencing For Fun’, The Drum Riding School and Street Soccer.
The Friday options programme support pupils who are involved with both the JASS and Duke of Edinburgh Awards and supports some pupils Health and Wellbeing targets.
