Welcome to Antonine

Dear parents, carers and friends of Antonine Primary School,

Welcome to our new website, I hope you find the information contained in this site useful.

If you are already a member of our school community then this site will help to keep you up to date with all aspects of school life.

If you are looking for a school for your child/ren I suggest that as well as navigating this site you also contact the school office and make an appointment to tour the school and meet with me so I can answer any questions you may have. If you decide to choose Antonine Primary School for your child’s education we very much look forward to working with you to help develop your son or daughter into a happy, enquiring well educated young person.

At Antonine Primary School we provide a safe, nurturing environment where every child is valued as an individual and where diversity is celebrated.

We recognise the knowledge and skills which children bring to school and build on these to ensure that every child receives challenging and appropriate experiences to meet their individual needs as 21st century learners.

At Antonine Primary School we believe education means much more than the acquisition of skills and learning of facts. It is about development of the whole person. We aim to do this by offering each child a broad, balanced, relevant curriculum enabling them to develop skills, acquire knowledge, appreciate the arts, engage with the sciences and pursue a healthy lifestyle by participating fully in all aspects of school life.

We believe it is important that individual talents and interests are promoted and we aim to provide activities and events both within and outwith school to cater for a variety of interests.

We have high, but realistic, expectations of our pupils, both in terms of working hard in class and life outside the classroom. We encourage our pupils to take care of their surroundings, to be helpful and polite and to consider the needs of others. I hope that your child will be happy with us and will respond to the many learning opportunities that we can offer them.

We place a great deal of emphasis on developing close links with parents and carers. We have a very active Parent Council who work together effectively with the school for the benefit of pupils. In collaboration with parents we aim to educate our pupils to become responsible citizens within their school, the local community and as Global citizens.

The staff at Antonine Primary feel privileged to share with you in your child's education and look forward to working with you in the years ahead.

We would also be delighted to hear from you if you would like to contribute to our website or have any ideas how we can develop this in the future. We welcome your thoughts and feedback as your views will help us shape our service so that we provide the best opportunities possible for all of our learners.

If you would like to comment on any aspect of school life please contact the school office on 0141 944 6923, in the first instance, and we will ensure that you have an opportunity to speak with the appropriate member of staff.

Yours in partnership,

Wendy Cameron

Headteacher
