Head Teacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the website of Dykehead Primary School! I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments going on in our school community.

Dykehead Primary is a vibrant school within the heart of the Shotts community. Our children are proud of the history of their community and are enthusiastic and motivated to learn. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy and confident, and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

Through our engaging curriculum, and a hardworking staff team, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning, and a curious and inquisitive nature. We strive to support our children in building the resilience they need to enjoy good social and emotional health. Our goal is that they leave our school with high aspirations, the skills for learning and work, and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum, where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured, to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.

We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We regard parents or carers as an active partner in a child’s education, and value their interest and support. The work of our school is underpinned by our Vision, Values and Aims.

As part of the Scottish Government’s pledge to close the poverty related attainment gap we have been awarded, once again, a substantial sum of money. Our aim is to use this money to focus on raising attainment in Literacy and Numeracy and improving health and wellbeing for every child in our care.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff, and the experiences that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities. It will grow over time as we add more information, but can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us. If you have questions about our school then please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.
