Community and Enrichment

Community and Parental Engagement

Nottingham University Samworth Academy continues to be fully committed to the local community; with the development of partnership projects, programmes and classes.

Local residents, community members and organisations can hire our facilities out of school hours with ‘The Venue@NUSA’, in evenings and at weekends, for sports and social clubs, meetings and corporate and commercial events. From meetings to conferences, sports tournaments and specialist classes, ‘The Venue’ is not about profit making; it’s about generating funds to invest in projects and activities for our neighbours, enabling access to state of the art facilities that are on the doorstep!

For further information on how to hire and utilise the NUSA site for your own purpose, please contact:

What is it? Enrichment involves broadening the learning experience through the use of additional subject areas and/or activities. Enrichment must serve to enhance the curriculum and the pupils learning experience.

What is it for? The purpose of Enrichment is to encourage pupils to find their skills and ambitions.

Enrichment Vision: To provide quality, safe opportunities for pupils to access a wide variety of enrichment courses and study support sessions. Through enrichment improve attainment, learning and progress, self-confidence, motivation and attendance. Positively impact upon pupils’ personal development, with specific measures for those in danger of under achieving. Re-engagement of hard to reach pupils.

Our philosophy: All students at the Nottingham University Samworth Academy (NUSA) are encouraged to take part in our enrichment programme. Participation in the wide range of activities which we provide beyond the academic curriculum should not be considered as an optional extra. Engaging with extracurricular activities can spark new interests, open doors and encourage a more in depth examination of subject areas. Furthermore, the wealth of extra-curricular activities on offer gives every pupil the opportunity to discover and exploit the talents and interests that give life balance and richness, promoting both happiness and motivation.
