Clubs & Activities

 Curriculum Clubs

We run a wide variety of extra curricular clubs at Dalmain, such as Cooking, Performing Arts, Dance, Football Clubs. We vary our clubs on a term by term basis, depending on demand.

Cost of Clubs

Each club runs for 10 weeks per term and costs vary depending on the club. If the club is run by a school adult it's £25 or if they are run by a professionals prices start at £35.  If your child is currently / has been on Free School Meals, then you could be entitled to 50% off the full price for curriculum clubs.

Payment for clubs is required in full at the start of every full term. Failure to pay could result in the space being offered to another child. No refunds will be given during that term.

Children are invited to select a club at the start of each academic term, and we endeavour to place as many children as possible in their first choice of club.

As well as joining a club, all children are invited to join the school choir.

  • To give children an opportunity to develop independence and initiative
  • To cover cross-curricular aspects of the PHSCE, English and Maths curriculum
  • To develop thinking skills and to contribute to whole-school focus on problem solving
  • To develop pupils’ speaking and listening skills.

Activities of a School Councillor:

  • Participate in class discussions about issues for School Council
  • Represent the views of the class at School Council meetings
  • Participate in School Council meetings (usually Monday lunch time)
  • Take responsibility for action agreed at School Council meetings
  • Feed back to the class and the teacher about what has happened at the School Council meeting.

If pupils have an issue that they would like discussed at School Council, they can approach their class representatives who will speak on their behalf.

Eco Council

The Eco Council was set up to enable pupils to make active decisions on how to make the school more sustainable.  Every year two pupils are elected from each Key Stage 2 class to represent the views of their class on the Council.
