Vision and Values


To enable children to become Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors who will make a positive contribution to the world.


In any school community values are essential for building positive relationships and creating a climate for learning between pupils, staff, parents, partners and the local community.  At Airyhall Primary, we share a common sense of values which guides our approaches, relationships, policies and behaviour. We believe these values will guide all that we do.
