At Priorsford, our vision is ‘to support each other to grow and learn together.’ This vision reflects the welcoming, caring and positive ethos we have established which supports and encourages all our children to enjoy learning. Through this nurturing ethos, we aim to develop successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.
Our agreed values encourage all our school community to demonstrate:
By upholding these values, we reflect the pride we have in our school and how we can all be responsible, respectful citizens.
Priorsford Primary School is a Rights Respecting School, which means that we uphold the UNICEF values, based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The Convention outlines, in the form of rights, what adults must do to enable children to grow and be healthy; to learn; to receive protection; to have their views listened to and to be treated fairly.
Each year, our classes create their own classroom charters, written and agreed by pupils and their class teacher. The school is proud of the very positive and encouraging ethos, which is regularly commented on by visitors and was recognised as a key strength of the school in our Education Scotland Inspection in January 2019. The pupils, staff and parents feel that the school is a welcoming and supportive environment for all and we aim to continue to build on this through our continued work as a Rights Respecting School.
