INSPIRING EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE AND SELF-BELIEF

Primary 1

All our pupils are individuals and therefore their starting point is our starting point. By careful observation, discussion and monitoring we tailor the curriculum to meet individual needs.

We strongly believe in the importance of play based learning, both inside and outside the classroom. Through the learning experiences provided, all our children have the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and creatively,

School is a new experience for children and emphasis is placed on attention and listening skills. Through short practical activities children develop auditory and visual discrimination which will aid future learning.

Our own established good practice means we provide experiences for children which include practical and formal work on a daily basis. A range of learning opportunities are well planned to engage all of our pupils at their stage of development. With a variety of whole class, group and individual experiences all children are challenged but experience success in all areas. The nurturing ethos of the school ensures each child grows in self confidence in a safe and positive environment.

  • Language and Literacy
