At Bamford Primary we are proud to present many opportunities for children to try out new experiences and activities. There are many options to consider. Clubs take place at lunchtimes and before or after school. The list changes throughout the year, so please keep an eye out for further information.

We offer a wide variety of clubs after and before school. These options change from time to time so it is a good idea to keep an eye out for new clubs. All clubs must be booked via the school office and payment made (where applicable) by ParentPay.
We have a well attended breakfast club which is run daily. Please see the separate page for breakfast club news.
Morning maths club is specifically for Y5 and Y6 children and provides additional support and learning time for developing mental mathematics skills, including times tables and arithmetic skills. It is run by Mrs Gemmell.
Mrs Gemmell and Mr Friend run a homework club. This club is available to all children Y2 - Y6 and is a quiet space for learning. Children are invited to bring along their homework where they can complete it in a supported environment. The club also offers an opportunity for children to ask for additional help with any aspect of their learning. For many, this is an ideal chance to complete homework prior to busy weekends.
A calm place to chill- out where children can doodle and colour whilst listening to calm music. This club encourages conversation and calm, child-led activities. (free)
