Kilchuimen Primary School
We warmly welcome you to Kilchuimen Primary School.
A new school is an exciting and scary step in any child’s life and we would like to make this step as easy and relaxed as possible for both you and your child.
Should you at any time have questions about the move to Kilchuimen, or any other aspects of your child’s education, please contact the school. You can either email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01320 366756 to arrange an appointment with the head teacher or your child’s class teacher. We very much want you to play a full part in your child’s educational journey, so that together we can give your child the best educational experience possible. This handbook will help you to identify areas where you can do this.
Our website and school handbook aims to give a brief account of life here at Kilchuimen Primary. You can also make use of the school website to keep abreast of changing events at: www.kilchuimenprimary.co.uk and click on our calendar.
We have achieved our first Green Flag and are now an Eco School, ongoing work led by the Eco Committee supports the development of our school grounds through a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach. We have planted an orchard, Grow our own vegetables and have a ‘Trim Track’ fitness trail in our grounds.
Participating in these projects ensures that we are embracing the Curriculum for Excellence which strives to ensure that pupils participate in a broad, balanced curriculum which suits individual learning needs.
Above all, we want your child to be challenged to achieve the best they can while enjoying their learning!
We look forward to getting to know both you and your child better and sharing in the exciting journey ahead.
