Millbank Primary School prides itself on providing pupils with a stimulating learning environment. We encourage pupils to be actively involved in their learning by setting challenging yet realistic targets, supported by staff and parents.
Achievement is recognised and success celebrated in a variety of ways, including weekly assemblies, school newsletters, our achievement walls and on displays around the school.
We actively promote partnership between home, school and the wider community and have an active and supportive parent body.
We are a health promoting school and offer our pupils opportunities to participate in various activities, which promote a healthy lifestyle and we are proud that we achieved our third green Eco School award in October 2013.
We also offer opportunities for pupils to hold positions of responsibility within the school, such as prefects, librarians, playground friends, pupil council, Eco-committee members, Base Buddies and SNAG (School Nutrition Action Group) members.
We want our children to be successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.
There are presently 9 mainstream classes in the school with a further two classes taught in the medium of Gaelic.
We also have 2 Additional Support Needs classes to support children with severe or profound additional support needs. These classes provide a combination of small group support and inclusion within mainstream classes.
There are currently 264 pupils in P1-7 with a further 40 pupils, 3 and 4 year olds, in the Nursery.
We pride ourselves on our welcoming and positive ethos and strive to follow the Millbank way –
- I smile and say hello.
- I listen to learn.
- I care for everyone and everything.
- I keep healthy and have a positive attitude.
- I work hard and challenge myself.
We look forward to welcoming you into our school.
Mrs Maria McPherson
