This site has been prepared to help you and your child by explaining some of the workings and organisation of Shawlands Primary School. We welcome you most warmly and trust that your child’s time here will be both happy and beneficial in every respect.
We aim to provide a learning environment, which is friendly and purposeful where every child can realise his or her potential in as many areas as possible. You can help us to achieve this by supporting the school and encouraging your child to have a positive attitude towards education. On entry, you will receive a copy of the Home-School Agreement, which sets out the ways in which we at school and you at home can work together for the benefit of your child. Please read it with your child and return the signature sheet of the agreement to school.
You are always most welcome to visit the school informally and see what goes on for yourself. If you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s education or development, please do not hesitate to contact us. Information relayed via other people, no matter how well meaning, can be unreliable and cause misunderstandings.
Shawlands Primary School is fortunate to have so many talented, caring and committed people among its staff, governors and parents. Please keep in touch with what is happening in your child’s school. We view you as active partners and need your informed support for the future and the changes it will bring.
