Welcome to Cathkin Primary School and Nursery Class. Our pupils describe our school as a caring, friendly and hardworking school.
Our vision is that we work together to nurture every child, providing opportunities for them to achieve and grow; a stepping- stone to their future.
Our school website will provide you with more details about our school and how we organise our pupils’ learning in order to provide the best education for all our learners.
We have a very good school ethos and our pupils feel well supported and included in our school.
While children are at school our aim is to plan and deliver in partnership with parents, learning opportunities which allow our children to progress at their own pace.
We fully support pupils with additional needs, offering individual support if required.
We encourage all children towards independent learning, equipping them with the necessary skills to develop skills for learning, life and work.
Our school encourages a broad range of achievements for all pupils.
At Catkin we encourage our pupils to work hard and to do their best in class while reinforcing the importance of what happens outside the classroom too.
Our pupils are reminded about being ‘Ready, Respectful and Responsible Learners’ and as part of our ‘ Rights based Learning ‘ programme; we work with our pupils to develop class charters. We also recognise and acknowledge pupils who regularly demonstrate that they are making good choices with their learning and behaviour.
We encourage our pupils to take a pride in their surroundings, to look after the school environment, to respect other people’s property and to be helpful and polite.
We encourage ‘pupil voice’ and have various pupil leadership opportunities to allow our pupils to share their ideas and to enable them to contribute to improve our school.
We hope that your child will be very happy with us and will respond to the many opportunities for learning which we offer through a wide range of activities and experiences.
We look forward to working in partnership with you. We hope to involve you as fully as possible in your child’s learning, school activities and school improvements.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school with any concerns you may have regarding your child.
