Pupils have a range of activities in the last 20 minutes of the day that are designed to support their learning and broaden their horizons.
On Monday there is a Drop Everything and Listen (DEAL) that includes teachers sharing videos about something they have a passion for or reading an extract from a non-fiction book. This allows pupils to discover the world through their teachers' eyes.
On Wednesday there is Drop Everything, Everyone Practice (DEEP). This is a programme designed to teach pupils strategies they can use to learn and revise independently, as well as explain the reasons behind other programmes at Henley Bank such as DEAR and DEAL.
Finally, on Friday there is another DEAL. This DEAL is a piece of music that is played to the whole school. Pupils are given the opportunity to listen to this piece of music (often chosen by staff) and then discuss it afterwards.
