Our Vision

Our vision for Ardler Primary School is to provide a safe, secure, welcoming and nurturing environment where everyone is valued equally.  We aim to be an integral part of the community, inspiring our children to be successful lifelong learners, effective contributors, confident individuals and responsible citizens.  We do this in partnership with home, community and other service providers.

Our 'Deciders Community Group' created a statement we all agree with:

"You don't have to be better than everyone else. You just have to be better than you have ever been".

Our values: Wisdom, Justice, Compassion and Integrity are the same as those engraved on the mace of the Scottish Parliament.

We provide an inclusive learning environment which is a positive stimulus for personal achievement, encourages aspiration and ambition and broadens experiences of the world. We hope this will lead to our young people to be informed and responsible citizens.

The school has strong links with many partner agencies who work in school with pupils and also consultation with staff/parents approach as appropriate. These include the Chalmers Ardler Church, Ardler Complex, Education Psychology Service, Outreach Teachers, School Community Support Service, Barnardo’s, NHS, Tayside Police/Fire and Rescue etc.

Valuing our place within our local community, we worked closely with the Ardler Village Trust, carol singing at the Christmas light switch on and flower planting during ‘Ardler’s in Bloom’.

Throughout all of our activities there will be a focus on developing skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work. These include literacy and numeracy, thinking skills, working with others, leadership, presenting and communicating, enterprising skills, and physical coordination. These activities will normally be incorporated into other areas of the curriculum.
