Wellshot Primary Inspection Report


Welcome from the Head Teacher


I would like to welcome you and your child to Wellshot Primary School. This handbook contains a range of information that you might find helpful. I hope that this handbook gives you a glimpse of life at Wellshot Primary School.P1060313.1

Wellshot Primary was inspected by HMIE in January 2007. The report was very encouraging and acknowledged the extremely positive morale of all staff, parents andpupils alike. You can view this online. We are dedicated to making all children’s educational experience challenging, motivating and relevant to the world of work. Weare committed to forging links with the local and wider community. Our achievements include four Eco School Green Flags, two Diamond Partnership Awards, Formal HealthPromoting School Status, International Excellence Award, Fair Trade School Award,Scottish Education Award and two Marjorie Boxall Quality Mark Awards for our NurtureClass, which is called The Rainbow Room.

Various activities are organised by our pro-active Parent Council throughout the year. We recognise the importance of a strong partnership with our parents and are constantly striving to strengthen links between home and school. We have strong business links with ASDA, TESCO, Barr Construction and the Co-Op. We also work hard to involve outside agencies such as With Kids, Play Therapy, Educational Psychology, Speech and Occupational Therapy in the work of the school for benefit of the children.

We pride ourselves in the wide range of extra curricular activities including football, Dance, Mini kickers, Rise and Shine Club, table tennis and ski-ing. We also have an annual residential trip for upper primary children. We are very fortunate to have a Home Support Worker from the “With Kids” charity working with children and families in Wellshot. He is currently in the process of setting up a Family Room within the school. Play Therapists from “With Kids “ have worked closely with the school to set up a Therapy Room for use with children .

We have a well established Nurture Class run by accredited staff who support children who may have difficulty accessing learning within the mainstream class. The Nurture Principles are embedded and are adopted across the school.

If you wish any more information about the school before you enrol your child, please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment. We look forward to having you and your child work with us and hope that this will be the start of a strong partnership.

Best wishes

Jennifer McCluskey

Head Teacher
