Head Teacher Message

HTWelcome to Moorfoot Primary School, Nursery Class and Garvel Deaf Centre. We hope that the content of our handbook (which is published on the home page) and details on this website, will explain many aspects of life in our school. If you have any questions, however, please feel free to discuss them with us.

We strive to be "5 star" in every way. Session 2018 to 2019  will be a very exciting time for our school community. Our school building has undergone an impressive £5 million refurbishment which will provide us with the highest quality learning environment, fit for purpose in a 21st century school. Bright airy classroom space is enhanced by the creation of large and flexible learning areas outside classrooms. Externally, the entrance plaza, senior playground / dining terrace and secure nursery playground are some of the striking features of the transformation.

At Moorfoot Primary School, Nursery Class and Garvel Deaf Centre, all staff work together to create a safe community where pupils have a sense of value and belonging. Each member of staff is committed to developing pupils as successful learners, responsible citizens, confident individuals and effective contributors. We endeavour to equip our pupils with the skills and attributes which will enable them to lead fulfilling and healthy lives in the 21st Century, with the capacity to make the best life choices and decisions. Every child at our school is special. All children are encouraged to develop positive attitudes towards learning and show care and respect for themselves and other people. We aim to "get it right for EVERY child" in our care.

We would like to welcome you into our school community and look forward to working with you and your child in the future.
