Welcome to Small Isles Primary School.
Small Isles Primary School is situated at the northern end of the village of Craighouse, Isle of Jura. The school is a single story building right next to the sea with a beach we frequently use for learning and outdoor play. We also have wonderful and versatile playground. Children here are educated from nursery up to primary 7. We are proud of our eco-school status and have achieved five eco-flags spanning a 10 year period.
We strive to provide a safe and caring learning environment where mutual respect and tolerance are fostered and children can achieve their full potential in all aspects of the curriculum. Each part of the school community has worked together to create a set of values for our school. We believe in these values and they guide how we work on a daily basis.
