Partnerships are very important to the development of Malin Bridge. They enable us to always remain outward looking, help us to understand our own strengths and areas to improve, provide support for our families and enable us to provide exciting and memorable learning opportunities for our children.
Family of Schools
Malin Bridge Primary works in a number of active partnerships with other schools and organisations. One of these partnerships is our Family of Schools, which centres on Forge Valley Community School.
The majority of our pupils move on to Forge Valley and you can find out more about the school by visiting www.forgevalley.sheffield.sch.uk or contacting them on 0114 2348805. Great care is taken to ensure that the transition to secondary school is as happy and smooth as possible, and we work closely in partnership with all of the schools that our pupils move on to.
We work very closely with our Family of Schools, listed below, and have regular shared activities through the school year. This year we will have a special learning week in each term (Autumn - Science & Technology Week / Spring - Literacy Week / Summer - Music Week), in addition to holding joint staff meetings, leadership meetings and training through the year.
School Partnerships - Learning Community G
All Sheffield primary schools are also in a 'locality' learning community. Ours contains the primary schools from three Families: Bradfield, Forge Valley & Stocksbridge. Learning Community G works closely together to bring improvements to all of our schools. This year we will continue to work closely together to provide training opportunities for our staff, moderate our assessment of children's learning and work closely together at school leadership level.
