PATHS Project

As part of the P6/7 PATHS curriculum, the class had to decide on what they wanted to do to make a difference in the school. They decided they were going to take over lunch bin hall duties and wanted to create an informative video explaining the ways we can protect the environment. The pupils planned and wrote the scripts, videoed the scene and edited them together. Here is the final video; we hope you enjoy it!

Inverclyde day 3

Today we made dens, did some wall climbing, rescued some mannequins, went orienteering and made our way through a rope path blindfolded! Tonight we are having a disco and eating some ice cream! Had a fantastic time and looking forward to telling everyone back home.

Coffee Morning for Ayrshire Cancer Support

On Friday 17th March, we held a coffee morning to raise money for Ayrshire Cancer Support. There was a selection of home baking, tea or coffee as well performances from the nursery, p4/5 and p6/7. We greatly appreciate all donations of baking and prizes that were handed in by family members and the community. Today, at assembly, a representative from Ayrshire cancer support visited to collected the check with our donation. Thanks to those that attended and bought raffle tickets; we managed to raise an amazing £395!

P5/6 Parental Meetings

This week in Primary 5/6 parents were invited to our parent/pupil progress meetings. We were all delighted with our progress especially our parents, always a worrying time for us pupils. This was very different for us because we met in person, we haven’t met for the last few years because of the Covid pandemic.

This was a very different meeting as pupils also met with the teacher and their parents/guardians. We had a meeting lasting 15 minutes where we looked at our assessment tracking on the computer and discussed the progress we have made.

I enjoyed this kind of meeting as I like to know how I am doing and the progress I have been making. (Kathryn)

I liked seeing how I have been doing, I felt included in the discussion. (Ayanna)

Our New Vision & Values

There is no doubt that the last two years have been very difficult.  But on this beautiful Spring day, we feel it is time to launch our new school vision, ‘Dawn in Dalrymple’ along with our school values and spread some much needed joy!!

Our Values:

  • Community
  • Trust
  • Joy
  • Ambition

Our Vision:

Today in Dalrymple Primary, our aim is simple.  It’s community at the heart of all we do – to make the very best use of the resources, places and people around us.  To shape the journey, not only of our learners, but alongside the community in which we serve.


Today, it requires trust, with strong and lasting foundations.  Building and sustaining partnerships – the mortar which holds together the building blocks of lifelong learning.

Today it requires bringing joy to the classroom.  This not only enables children to be informed, but to be inspired, inquiring and independent, ready to face the challenges of an ever changing landscape.

Today our ambition is again simple – we want excellence in all that we do, for all whom we serve. We don’t want our learners to reach their potential.  We want them to exceed it.


You can view our Dalrymple PS & ECC vision here:




Our Primary 7 pupils have also been busy making a video to promote these values in the school and beyond.  Keep an eye open for this exciting project!

Over the last few weeks we have recommenced our school assemblies. It

has been an absolute joy to have the whole primary school back together – it feels like another step closer to normal school life.  Hopefully over the next few weeks and months we can make further progress towards normal school operational life.

We are also in the process of identifying further after-school clubs which can be accessed for all pupils across the primary school.  Information will follow soon in relation to his.

We know this has been a very difficult and frustrating period of transition in the life of the school.  I would like to reassure you of our commitment to working together with all our parents/carers and wider school partners to ensure that each of our pupils are… Good at Learning… Good at Life!
