Our expectations for every child at Claypotts Castle Primary

School are reflected in our shared school vision.

“Pupils, staff, parents and others in our community will work

together to continually improve standards in the school and strive

for excellence in the quality of learning and teaching so that our

learners are happy, motivated, confident, successful and realise

their full potential”.

We nurture every child to reach his or her full potential and

celebrate achievements. We encourage all our pupils to develop

a love of learning and to develop a strong sense of responsibility

and citizenship within the school and local community.

Within a happy, relaxed and supportive atmosphere, we aim to

develop every child’s emotional, social and physical wellbeing.

We have high standards of pupil behaviour and children are

guided to make positive choices within a supportive, whole school

behaviour system.

We aim to develop relationships with the school community

in an atmosphere of trust. We take pride in the high level of

pastoral care we provide and we encourage you to be part of this

community by engaging with our extremely supportive Parent

Council which works tirelessly to support the work of the school.

We value our links with the local community and undertake a

variety of activities to develop positive relationships and extend

our pupils’ experiences. The school is particularly proud of its

strong links with Craigie High School and our cluster primaries.
