Extended Learning/Clubs

We believe that extended learning opportunities, sometimes also called extracurricular, play a key role in the development of our children. We seek to provide as many opportunities as we can for children to extend their learning and discover and celebrate their talents and interests.

After-School Activities

We offer a range of after-school activities for various ages, from football to musical theatre, as well as hosting Code Club sessions run by a Code Club parent volunteer. Our selection of clubs varies from term to term according to availability.

Tuition Groups

We also run a number of after-school tuition groups in a variety of subjects. Children are invited to attend these sessions where we feel that they could benefit from some extra and in-depth support in a subject. Sessions run from the end of school until 4pm.

Educational Visits

Educational visits and trips are frequently arranged to enhance and extend the children's learning. Parents and carers will be informed about these trips with as much notice as possible, although sometimes opportunities will present themselves at shorter notice. Parents and carers are asked to provide permission for the school year which covers local visits but will be asked for specific permission for trips further afield. Although some trips are free, many will involve costs, and in these cases, parents and carers will be asked for a voluntary contribution.

During their time at Malin Bridge Primary, children will also have the opportunity to take part in residential visits. The Year 6 children visit Kingswood for three days, the Year 4 children visit Thornbridge for three days and Year 2 children visit Hollowford for two days. We believe that residential visits offer children a fantastic opportunity and experience, and we are very grateful for the commitment of our staff in making them possible. Visit the trips and residentials page for more information.
