School Mission Statement:
The South School encourages children to achieve their full potential within a climate of equality and fairness. Children are supported in developing a knowledge of right from wrong. The school promotes an environment where the views of others, both adults and children, are listened to and where respect is shown for staff and pupils, for property and for the wider environment. (8th November 2005)
South School was built in 1977. Nursery pupils are catered for in a purpose-built unit, they have their own separate entrance and a secure outside play area and cloakroom area. On one side of the central dining room/hall/gym are three large infant classrooms.
The junior/senior classes have easy access to an open area which provides space for children to work. This area is also used for displaying children's work and our home reader libraries are situated here.
The Head Teacher's room, school office, Staffroom and Janitor's room are situated around the main entrance of the school.
The school has a tarmac area at the back and sides of the school as well as grassy areas. We also have a large field which is used in the summer for football and other games.
South Primary School is a New Community School within Highland Council. There is a Pupil Support Base housed in three separate areas, offering work-space alongside a supported teaching area and facilities for multi-agency work.
There are currently 111 pupils in P1-7 with a further 21 pupils in the Nursery. The school achieved Health Promoting status – Level 4 in November 2005.
