Spindle Point is part of a cluster of 10 primary schools (in Kearsley and Little Lever) who work collaboratively to secure good outcomes for children.  As well as organising joint professional development opportunities, teachers meet up regularly to share ideas and good practice.  Throughout the year a number of inter-school activities are arranged including sports competitions, events and fundraising. The cluster operates a programme of special learning events for identified children who show particular skill or aptitude in an aspect of the curriculum; for example gymnastics, art, forensic science, local history, music.
