Glasgow City Council Welcome to Knightswood Primary School

A BIG WELCOME 
A BIG WELCOME

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

I would once again like to thank you all for the support you have given your children and the school during 2014.

Your continuing support helps us in so many ways. Across Scotland public services  continue to experience reductions in the  resources of time, money and people, whilst trying to ensure a high level of service is maintained. This is becoming increasingly difficult, and we are having to prioritise our time and resources very carefully. It will be by community effort that we continue to develop our school to be the best we can be. Your understanding of this and your support is vital.

The dreadful events in Pakistan should help us all focus on living a life where forgiveness, compassion and understanding guide our societies. We must not lose sight of our values and the free society we live in, where we have the right to live in a peaceful democracy and where our children are educated and valued by all.

 

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

 

I wish you many moments of calm and joy this festive season.

Welcome to Knightswood Primary 
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
 
Ann McIntosh
Head Teacher
