Extended school services

A school's provision of extended services supports its work as the hub of the community.

In partnership with other agencies schools work to provide access to a wide range of high quality services and activities that help meet the needs of children and young people, their families and the wider community.

All maintained Shropshire schools offer access to a core offer of services that:

  • encourage children and young people to achieve their full potential
  • have a positive impact on children’s motivation, behaviour and engagement with learning
  • offer a wider range of opportunities, raising aspirations for all

All maintained schools in Shropshire have provided a menu of extended services since September 2010 and continue to review what they offer to ensure services available continue to develop and improve.
