We encourage children to become involved in extra curricular activities. We have football training available for our primary five to seven pupils. A team is chosen from the children involved to play in North Lanarkshire Council's tournaments and friendly matches. Netball is offered to pupils from primary six to primary seven. The school choir is also available to pupils and has over 50 members.

Parents of our new primary one are welcome to come and visit the school and talk to our head teacher. During the summer term, the new intake will be invited to visit the school. we would aim to reassure the children that school is a pleasant, welcoming place. This series of visits will give the children the opportunity to meet their class teacher, visit the classroom in which they will work and become familiar with the school. During this time, parents will have an opportunity to talk to the head teacher about the school and the curriculum and have any questions answered.

We play a prominent role in developing children educationally, emotionally and socially in the hope that they will benefit greatly from the facilities available at the school and from the involvement of the school in the community ventures. We will endeavour to maintain a high and positive profile in our community. The school is used by a Girls' Group, Computer Class, Youth Club, Karate Club and Forgewood PIP.

Pupils normally transfer from primary to secondary between the ages of 11.5 and 12.5 so that they will have the opportunity to complete at least four years of secondary education. Pupils from Muirhouse primary normally transfer to Clyde Valley High, Wishaw.
