Dear Parents/Carers

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your child to St. John Ogilvie Primary School and Early Years.

At St John Ogilvie Primary and Early Years we aim to ensure that every child achieves their full potential in every area of the curriculum and develop skills which will enable them to confidently undertake further education and participate effectively in the world of work. We take a holistic approach to every child to meet individual needs and that every child is socially and emotionally ready for the future and has a positive mindset.

All staff work very hard as a team to maintain a positive ethos within our school and early years to ensure the children are working in a nurturing environment. They are encouraged to be independent, responsible and respectful members of the community and to work cooperatively.

As a Catholic Primary School, our Christian faith permeates all aspects of school life, where everyone is treated with equality, fairness, love and respect. The role and participation of parents/carers in this journey of faith is extremely important.

Parents/carers are warmly welcomed into the school to share their skills and expertise to enhance provision for our children across the school. There will be opportunities to meet your child’s class teacher throughout the year and we have an open-door policy where we are keen for parents/carers to share any worries or concerns they may have.

Please feel free to contact me if I can assist you in any way.

I look forward to working with you and your child.

Yours sincerely

Pauline McCulloch

Head Teacher
