During our subject teaching, we try to provide our children with special enriching experiences whenever possible. 

We also try to provide as many other opportunities as we can throughout the year to build our children's 'cultural capital'.  To ensure that we offer our children as many possible opportunities for new experiences as possible we have created a MAT passport.  We have then identified where our children will encounter these experiences in our Stoke By Nayland Enrichment Plan. The passport identifies opportunities within our curriculum to enhance our children's learning.
