Our School

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.

The management team is made up of the Head Teacher, Depute Head Teacher and Principal Teacher. There are ten classes with a total of fourteen teachers.  Our Early Learning and Childcare provision consists of an Early Years Team Leader and six Early Years workers, four of whom are part-time. Over the session, our staffing has been stable.


Vision & Values

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. We value Being Active, Good Manners, Learning, Working Hard, Teamwork, Responsibility, Respect, Trust and Honesty, and Kindness.


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, HWB)

·        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 Motto

‘Learning Together, Growing Together’

This reflects our continuous journey of improvement as well as our endeavour to support individual growth in ALL our learners.

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. You can do so by contacting us through the school app or using the 'Contact' tab at the top corner of the website.
