Bun-sgoil Shlèite enjoys its status as a Gaelic Medium School with an English medium department. As such, Gaelic enjoys a high profile in the daily life of the school, both with Gaelic learners and those learning through the medium of Gaelic. There are presently 3 Gaelic classes and 1.5 English classes.The main building comprises of a multi-purpose hall (which forms our dining room as well as providing P.E. facilities), four classrooms, library, school office, work area and staff room. The former school House is also used as a classroom. Adjacent to the school is the Multi Use Games Area (MUGA); a school and community resource. The demountable unit which houses the sgoil-àraich/nursery is at the edge of the school pitch and the children enjoy the benefit of our recently refurbished woodland area. We are also fortunate to have a large school garden which we are developing at the moment.
The school actively promotes partnership and close working with the Parent Council and Forum, Sleat and the wider community and the local business community. Our desire is to create a happy, creative and inspiring learning environment for all the children. We hope that through this our children will develop an ethos of enterprise, achievement and mutual respect, nurturing and celebrating each child's skills, talents, sense of community and team spirit, to help them grow into hard working individuals and responsible citizens.
