Further information

We have just moved into a new building in January 2014 which has two class bases and a large hall/dining area.

It has an open outlook with tarmac and grass play areas, as well as a football pitch, offering ample space for outdoor activities.

At present pupils are taught at their Curriculum for Excellence level in literacy, numeracy and other areas of the curriculum by three members of teaching staff.  The Head Teacher is part of the teaching team for three days a week.  The curriculum is carefully planned to ensure that every child progresses at a pace appropriate to his or her ability.
