Our Values



We are currently reviewing our school values and are involving the whole school community in choosing 5 values which are meaningful for our school/ELC.  We have sent out a letter asking you to choose 5 values that you would like us to embed in everything we do.

We would appreciate if you could return the letter to school ASAP.  Your views are important to us.  Thank you to those who have already returned these.  We have approx. 360 families in school/ ELC and only 40 returns so far.

You can also let us know your choice by our online survey

Thank you for co-operation.

Please return letters/complete online survey by Friday 1st June.


The Hive

Our Nurture Room, The Happy Hive has just opened and is currently being used by a range of children for different uses.

The goal is to establish small supported group work providing a secure, predictable environment where the individual developmental needs of each pupil are catered for and focus on emotional and social development as well as academic progress is a priority.  The funds to create this important space have come from the Pupil Equity Fund, a Scottish Government initiative, which provides some schools with funds in order to increase the attainment for those children most in need.

It is part of the school’s inclusion and Health and Wellbeing provision to offer children opportunities to revisit early learning skills and promote and support social and emotional development. We believe that children’s learning is most effective when they have a sense of emotional wellbeing, good self-esteem and a sense of belonging. The Happy Hive provides extra opportunity to foster this ethos and so helps to develop maturity and resilience as well as being a place of learning.

The Nurture Group Principles

* Children’s learning is understood developmentally

* The classroom offers a safe base

* All behaviour is communication

* The importance of transition in children’s lives

* Builds a child’s self-esteem and confidence

* Builds skills for classroom learning

* Language is a vital means of communication
