Calside- Our School

Motto: “Together Everyone Achieves More”

calside spring

The staff and children of Calside Primary extend a warm welcome to all parents, friends and visitors to our school.

Every parent wants the best for their children and this is particularly true of the education we would like them to receive.   We want our school to be a caring, stimulating and challenging experience for our young people and we believe that the best way to achieve this is through a close working relationship with parents and families.  With your help and support we shall endeavour to provide your children with a high quality education which encourages them to develop their talents and abilities to the full.

The staff at Calside are a highly qualified, caring staff who are dedicated to ensuring that your child will develop his or her skills to their full potential.  We work to ensure that the time your child spends with us is happy and fruitful.  We hope that by the time your child leaves he or she will have grown into a mature, responsible young person ready to make the most of his or her secondary school.
