Although our school is quite small, with only two pupils, we follow the same curriculum as any other school in Scotland. We receive specialist PE, Art, Library Skills & Music teaching from teachers at Baltasound Junior High School each week. As well as the academic benefits of this arrangement, we also get to socialise with a wider friendship group. This is vital in a school with only 2 children. We also have a Early Learning & Childcare facility (otherwise known as a Nursery department), which should re-open when there is a child of eligible age. Currently ELC is available to children between the ages of 3 and 5.
