with our children as they adventure into exciting virgin territory
…remagicalising the world!” - James Bradburne.

schools should become extended schools offering access to a core
offer of five extended services. Schools may choose to provide
these services themselves, offer them through clustering
arrangements or use third party providers prom the private,

organisations that deliver high quality after school clubs,
activities or special events.
