Message from the Head Teacher
East Craigs Primary is a non-denominational Primary school which has a current roll of 485 including pupils from Nursery to Primary 7. We have a very strong sense of school community and are very proud of our commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, where we aim to equip our pupils with skills for learning, life and work. Our staff team works together to provide a safe, caring environment where every child, and their family, are valued as individuals and where diversity is celebrated.
The principles of Curriculum for Excellence are at the heart of our practice and we value the knowledge and skills which children bring to school from home and the wider learning environment. We build on these to ensure that every child receives challenging and appropriate experiences to meet their individual needs to ensure equity of educational experience. We place high value on the acquisition of basic skills as well as ensuring that our pupils experience a broad and balanced curriculum.
At East Craigs we are delighted to share with you in your child’s education and greatly value partnerships with Parents & Carers to ensure that your child receives the best possible educational experience. Our Parents and Carers are very supportive of the work, and life, of the school. We have a very active Parent Council and PTA who work together effectively with the school to benefit all our pupils.
As Head Teacher, I am fully committed to ensuring an ethos of an “Open School” where all are welcome and will be treated with dignity and respect. As stated in our “Positive Relationships Policy” we value open, mutually respectful relationships between parents & carers, staff and children. I am delighted to meet with you, should you have any questions, or concerns, which you would like to discuss in order that any issues may be addressed as promptly as possible.
