Welcome to Breadalbane Academy Primary. There are approximately 200 pupils in our primary school, who join pupils from our associate primaries when they move up to our secondary at the end of P7.
Our primary department is an exciting learning environment full of curious children and enthusiastic teachers. Assessments demonstrate that our young people perform strongly in the core skills of literacy and numeracy which lay a strong foundation for their time in the secondary.
We work very hard to keep our pupils actively engaged in their learning and try to offer them a wide range of experience beyond the traditional primary curriculum. In 2018 the school was a finalist in the Scottish Education Awards which was in part due to the innovative work our primary has been doing on STEM teaching. The primary was also recently commended by a visiting local authority team on the quality of our outdoor learning.
In session 2018/19 we will have 8 classes covering the years P1 to P7, as well as two Gaelic Medium composite classes (P1-3 and P4-7). The primary also has a Nurture Base and an Enhanced Support Class (the Sky Room) which offer alternative learning environments for pupils who may benefit from these.
The primary department is led by Mrs Vicky Marshall, Depute Headteacher, who is currently supported by Mrs Donna Jenkins, Acting-Principal Teacher.
