Extra-curricular activities series
To conclude this series, this time we will consider how to target extra-curricular activities at those who are most in need and how we can ensure we provide equitable – which is not always synonymous with equal – access to extra-curricular provision in order to “level the playing field” by offering more to those who start with less…
If extra-curricular activities are important, then surely we want all pupils to access them. I believe we should offer more not less, but crucially, not the same either to disadvantaged pupils. In other words, we must extend the curriculum for disadvantaged pupils in order to ensure equity as opposed to equality.
