2 Our Vision In our school its our aim to care for our children as we encourage them to learn within a context of understanding of the rights that they have and the responsibilities that go along with them. Our vision statement is "To Prepare Today's Children for the World of Tomorrow”, and so we are committed to providing the most stimulating education that we can for all individuals according to their need. We seek innovative ways to widen the children's learning experience and look for opportunities to include parents and the wider school community. At Strathkinness Primary School our Golden Rule is: “We believe every child has the right to be happy”.

3 School Values To provide a warm, caring & welcoming environment. To be supportive and helpful making the children central to everything we do. To develop our strong community links; involving all members of the local community in the life of the school. To promote pupil self-confidence and enjoyment of learning. To have high expectations and continue our strong academic ethos; encouraging each child to achieve their potential. To promote positive behaviour and good relationships between pupils in an environment where the pupils feel safe and secure. The aims of the school were set in consultation with the pupils, parents and staff during workshops.
