Our Vision, Values & Aims
In Abronhill Primary School & Nursery Class, we aspire to have a learning community that is caring, welcoming and stimulating. Through high quality teaching and learning, children will work to their full potential to develop their talents, self-esteem and life-long learning skills, in a safe and happy environment. Positive partnerships with families and the wider community will ensure children’s ongoing success in attainment and achievement.
The aims of the school and nursery class are:
- To teach children life skills and to encourage children to be confident, independent learners.
- To encourage all children to work to their full potential and to develop their skills and talents.
- To recognise and celebrate both academic and non-academic achievements.
- To encourage friendship, understanding and harmony among all children.
- To promote a sense of self-respect and self-esteem.
- To foster good relationships among all those who work in, or visit, the school.
- To establish a sense of community and participate in activities involving other schools and agencies.
- To develop the four capacities of a Curriculum for Excellence: Successful Learners, Effective Contributors, Responsible Citizens and Confident Individuals.
At Abronhill Primary School and Nursery Class we believe these values help us to fulfil our aims:
* Respect * Caring

SPIRITUAL, SOCIAL, MORAL AND CULTURAL VALUES
The spiritual, social, moral and cultural values we wish to develop in our children permeate the life of Abronhill Primary and are not confined to religious lessons. We aim to teach the children to respect the beliefs, practices and values of religious traditions within their own community and also those of people from other faith communities.
Parents/Guardians from ethnic minority religious communities may request that their children be permitted to be absent from school in order to celebrate recognised religious events. Only written requests will be considered. Appropriate requests will be granted on not more than three occasions in any one school session and the pupil noted as an authorised absentee in the register.
