Recent Achievements

We are continuing to run a number of lunchtime opportunities for the children to ensure that they can learn new skills and enjoy each other’s company beyond the classroom. The chess coaches are providing the opportunity for children who chose to come along to learn new skills and I am very proud of the children from P6 and P7 who give their time so regularly to support younger children. Mr Murphy is currently arranging sporting coaches to come into school for classes, and we always provide ICT and library for groups of children at lunchtime.

As the weather improves there will be more outdoor opportunities within the school day- please remember to apply sunscreen and give your child a hat and water during the good weather.

Our wonderful Primary 7 pupils received amazing feedback from all who attended our ‘Cinderella and Rockerfella’ performances. The children were outstanding and made us all very proud. A massive thanks to all the children who worked incredibly hard with learning lines and dance routines. The children had beautiful costumes and outstanding make-up assisting them to convincingly become their characters. Putting on four performances which lasted 1 and a half hour was no easy feat, however the children were professionals and more importantly had a lot of fun, as did the parents and staff. The atmosphere at the school was incredible and it set us all nicely for the wonderful Easter break.

My thanks go to all of the children for their lively and enthusiastic performances and help behind the scenes, to the teachers who helped with costumes and scenery and to Mrs McKnight and Mr Cunningham for their hard work. There are some very good photos to help you relive the excitement on Twitter!

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
