Welcome to Newbigging Primary School

Welcome to Newbigging Primary School. We are a small, friendly and welcoming rural school on the border of Angus and Dundee.

Our Core Values

Our core values were developed by our school community. They demonstrate the importance placed on togetherness, positivity, compassion and strength. Our core values are:

  • Be kind
  • Be positive
  • Be brave
  • Be respectful
  • Be part of our Team


Across our schools, we aim to Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC). This is in line with the GIRFEC policy developed by the Scottish Government. These indicators are; Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respectful, Responsible and Included.  These have been developed over time across our school community and have become part of our language of learning. Children are encouraged to reflect upon our school vision, values and aims as part of their daily routine to consolidate positive behaviour.

Learner Qualities

Our learner qualities were agreed by children, parents and team members. Our children chose characters for each learner quality and as a school we have spent time demonstrating how to achieve each learner quality. The learner qualities focus are an example of what it takes to be a good learner.
