At Marlfields Primary School we pride ourselves on the number of residential and day visits we organise with the support of our ‘Friends for Marlfields’ fundraising for the children in the school. We believe all experiences outside the classroom are valuable ones and the social and emotional skills the children gain by spending time away from the home environment are invaluable. All visits focus on giving children as many different ‘Hands on’ experiences as possible whilst developing life long knowledge and skills relating to the curriculum delivered through current topic work.
Our trip reports are reported on in our weekly newsletters which we invite you to read.
Our charging policy is available to read on the Policies page of our website.
We are a Singing School !
Marlfields has achieved the Gold Award in the Sing Up scheme previously and is now aiming for the PLATINUM AWARD ! If successful they will become the ambassador school for Cheshire East schools.
The schemes awards celebrate and promote schools that value singing as an important part of each day.
The Awards support schools on their journey through the Sing Up programme, to make sure everyone gets the most from our resources and training.
Embracing a whole-school philosophy, the Sing Up Awards aim to:
The Awards complement other initiatives and programmes, such as Healthy Schools and the School Sports Initiative. Similarly, the Every Child Matters objectives can be achieved through the Awards, by putting singing at the heart of school life.

Year 5 are taking part in the Young Voices 2016 at Manchester Arena on Monday 29th February.
We are preparing for the sound of thousands of children singing in harmony. Young Voices combines the power of singing together as one, with accompaniment from a wide range of musicians and artists, to create an amazing performance.
Every year, schools across the country practise music in class with their teachers to prepare themselves to take part in these massive concerts. Over the years the children in the choir have performed with artists such as Alexandra Burke, Joss Stone, and Gary Barlow as well as raising over 1 million pounds for Children’s charities such as CLIC Sargent.
With a full live band, backing singers and the internationally acclaimed conductor David Lawrence, it makes for one of the most exciting and memorable musical experiences you can imagine. We have our t-shirts prepared, torches charged, banner ready and have learnt the songs. This promises to be a fun and exciting day. More news will follow when we have been to the event in Manchester.
