Millbank Primary School provides an educational service to children from Nursery through to Primary 7 (ages 3 years – 12 years). We are a non-denominational primary school with a current role of 242 primary and 58 nursery children.
The school is designated by the Moray Council to serve children living within the following territorial boundaries: High Street, March Road, Low Street, Commercial Road, and South of the A98 Cullen – Fochabers from a west of Connage to the east side of the Gollachy Burn, and south as far as Hill of Stonyslacks.
The Education (Scotland) Act 1981, gives parents the right to choose the school they wish for their children to attend, regardless of designated catchment areas. If you would like to enrol your child out with your catchment area please complete a Placement Request form and send this to Moray Council Educational Services. You will be informed of their decision by letter with regard to your request as soon as possible.
Our school is a busy, working community where everybody’s contributions are valued and respected. Everyone is encouraged and supported to reach their full potential through effort and hard work.
We aim for high standards and we work in partnership with parents to encourage responsible citizens, successful learners, effective contributors and confident individuals.
We have strong links with our community.
Pupils are in mixed ability, according to their ages throughout the school. Schools in Scotland are staffed to a formula that relates to the school roll. Hence the size and distribution of the classes means that we may have to form composite classes, a feature in most schools.
At the start of each session parents are given a list of holiday dates and the names and roles of all staff in school.
School newsletters are sent home regularly with children to ensure that parents are kept up- to-date with all school activities, holidays etc.
