School ethos

In our school we are committed to providing appropriate opportunities for the development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural values through both the ethos and the curriculum.  This will be undertaken in partnership with parents/carers and will take account of the individual needs of pupils and the views of parents/carers.

We see ourselves as a nurturing school at the heart of the community where all learn to be the best they can be. The ethos of our school is built on the core values of happiness, respect and ambition. We work with families to encourage pupils to live these values, thereby acquiring knowledge, skills and attitudes which enable them to develop as responsible citizens, successful learners, effective contributors and confident individuals.

We are proud to be a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. Our commitment to the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child forms the basis of everything we do at Lochgoilhead Primary School and ELC Unit.

Our school welcomes and encourages diversity and individuality, while emphasizing our common commitment to moral values such as honesty, respect for others, compassion and justice.  Fundamental principles of our school are that all who are involved in the life of our school have the right to be respected as individuals and carry the responsibility to act in a considerate and respectful manner towards others.  We are firmly committed to the elimination of any form of discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, gender or disability.
