At Stoer Primary our vision is to continue to provide inspiring opportunities for all learners which are sourced from the valuable heritage of our school, community and the wider world.

Stoer Primary School is a unique traditional stone building standing above a small lochan.  The school has a catchment area which extends to Drumbeg to the north and Clachtoll to the south.  It offers its pupils a stimulating learning environment which is supported by an ethos of encouraging achievement and celebrating success. 

We promote the partnership between home, school and the wider community and have active Parent and Pupil Councils.  We have one composite primary class in the school.  Currently, the school roll is under ten pupils in P1-P7.  We have two part-time teaching staff, two support staff and visiting instructors who visit either weekly or in blocks over the school year.   

Within the school building we run a small Nursery twice a week with two pupils attending.  The Early Years Principal Teacher for our Associated Schools Group visits us regularly to support the nursery staff.  An Active Schools Co-ordinator works regularly with the school to promote extra-curricular activities.  Hot meals are delivered each day and the school upholds its Health Promoting Schools status.  PE lessons take place in the Assynt Leisure Centre and pupils enjoy swimming lessons annually.
