Lanark Primary is a non-denominational school of approximately 280 pupils. We have an Early Learning and Childcare service for 3-5 year olds. During sessions 2019-20 and 2020-21, we will move to an ELC that provides fully funded 1140 hours for 3-5 year olds.

Our Vision

At Lanark Primary School and ELC, learning is at the heart of all we do. We strive to provide rich learning experiences that build confidence and self-belief. We foster a ‘can do’ attitude which enables everyone to reach their full potential.

We work in strong partnership with our parents and the wider community to ensure that we feel safe, included and valued within our school community…and beyond.

Our Values


Good Manners

Hard Working




Trust and Honesty



Our Aims:

These are:

to have a clear focus on learning and teaching

to provide high quality teaching of core skills (e.g. literacy, numeracy- including problem solving)

to provide real contexts for learning, including outdoor learning, and link learning to support pupils’ understanding of the world around them

to develop the key personal qualities of resilience, perseverance and a positive attitude to learning (being ‘ready to learn’)

to encourage skills for life, learning and work


Our school rebuild was completed in November 2013 and has a varied catchment area which draws from a mix of private and council housing. The school is set in beautiful grounds with its own forest and gardens which are used to deliver outdoor education and woodland play. The school currently has four Forest School trained teachers who work alongside staff to deliver a creative outdoor curriculum throughout the school.  The school has one shared play area, outdoor covered areas and each class has its own outdoor learning space. There are many extra facilities such as an outdoor stage, outdoor classroom, gardens and multi - purpose games arena.

As always you are free to contact the school at any time and we aim to make sure that any enquiries are dealt with as quickly as possible.

Yours sincerely,
Farah Crook
