Supporting your child's wellbeing

The Academy strives to support the wellbeing and safety of all children. 

We wish to assure parents that their children's welfare is our prime concern.

A strong partnership between home and school is our aim, in order to deal with any issues that may arise together.

We are committed to the principles of GIRFEC* and through learning opportunities and pastoral support our aim is to provide you with nurturing and enriching experiences that support all aspects of your wellbeing as represented by the SHANARRI wheel below.

*GIRFEC (Getting It Right For Every Child) is the national approach in Scotland to improving outcomes and supporting the wellbeing of our children and young people by offering the right help at the right time from the right people.
