Welcome to Knightswood Primary

WELCOME FROM THE HEADTEACHER

 
Knightswood Primary School is a vibrant and happy learning environment.  Our children, teachers and support staff work together, learning from each other and expanding the knowledge and skills of our children through an active and broad curriculum which is being developed to meet the four capacities of the Curriculum for Excellence.
 
We wish to nurture our young people to become Confident Individuals, Effective Contributors, Independent Learners and Responsible Citizens. Our children are valued and their strengths and skills are celebrated. Evaluation is an important tool on our learning journey, and we promote self and peer evaluation for all our learners.  Expectations and achievements are high, and all children are encouraged, guided and advised on how to develop and improve.
 
We are proud of the ethos of respect and care we have developed in partnership with children and their families, and we promote positive behaviour through shared values.  Our values are Respect, Wisdom, Justice and Integrity.
 
Children are consulted and are given opportunities to influence the development of the school.  We have an active Pupil Council, and other pupil groups.  Staff, children and families are involved in setting the priorities for the School Improvement Plan.
 
It is our wish to co-operate and work with families and others who can support the children’s learning in the widest sense, and we take every opportunity to listen to each other to best meet the children’s needs.
 
I look forward to working with you and your children over the years.
 
Yours sincerely

Being the Best we Can Be

This year we continue to focus on our values. Compassion, Integrity, Wisdom and Justice. Our Children have already demonstrated their understanding of what the values mean in day to day actions and in their explanations at Assembly.

 
We are now developing opportunities for every child to be part of active citizenship initiatives. A new framework has been developed and every child can now expect to participate in lessons and activities to help them learn and understand about:
 
Children’s Rights, Nutrition and being Active, ECO Issues, Charitable Giving and helping in our communities, Diversity, Global Citizenship Managing money and Finance and Democracy.
To help support this work and to develop opportunities and prepare all children for their future we are setting up a School Steering Group. Membership will include children, staff, parent, pastoral team, business and community representation.
 
We will also be looking to support our children to achieve and attain even more. Glasgow will be part of the Scottish Government’s Improvement Challenge.
 
In Knightswood, we have looked at research and together with Bankhead Primary and Scotstoun Primary we want to increase opportunities for parents to get better information and examples of what their children are learning and how they can help.
 
Research has identified parental engagement in learning as one of the best contributors to raising attainment. There are a great many ways to be engaged. Our plan is to provide on-line workshops and support, accessed through a dedicated Youtube channel.
