Vision & Values
William MacGregor Primary School is a popular one form entry school which has been serving the local community and beyond for over 130 Years. We have 7 classes from Reception (Ladybirds class) through to Year 6 and are proud of the daily successes of each and every one of our pupils.
Here at William MacGregor Primary School staff, children and governors work hard to achieve, are inspired by each other and other people further afield and have aspirations for their short and long term futures. Our vision, established in September 2011, encompasses this ethos.
In the summer term 2018 the governors worked together to add further detail to our vision, on the 3rd September 2018 the staff contributed their thoughts and parents and children have also worked on this detail during the first two weeks of the autumn term. We are currently collating all these ideas to create an updated vision which adds more detail to our three words of Inspire, Aspire, Achieve.
At William MacGregor our children are our best asset and are constantly striving to improve themselves. They work incredibly hard to achieve their best. Our curriculum develops key skills of collaboration, independence and resilience so that the learning culture in each classroom is second to none. They are proud to attend William MacGregor.
All successful schools work in partnership with the parents and the community and we are no exception. We take seriously the views of parents and provide them with regular information about their children’s’ learning, school activities and community events.
Lying at the heart of our values is our ‘Rights Respecting Schools’ award which we gained in July 2012. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.
Our values of honesty, trustworthy, hard working and kindness stem from our work on Rights Respecting Schools; these values, along with our vision, form the ethos of our school and are deeply embeded in daily practice and rotuines.
