Dear Parents/Carers

On behalf of all the staff, I am delighted to welcome you to Muirtown Primary and hope that you and your child will have a long and happy association with us on their learning journey through school. We strive to create a happy, stimulating and caring environment that will enable  children to develop both academically and socially, offering them a wide variety of learning experiences across the curriculum. We work hard  to ensure that children have a positive self-esteem, reach their potential and leave Primary with happy memories of learning and an enthusiasm to be life long learners.  

At Muirtown Primary, we are proud to work as a team, with our new school motto- Working Together Achieving More.   The staff are an enthusiastic and committed team who work together to bring motivation and challenge to learning. We also believe that a strong and supportive partnership between home and school is essential to the health and well-being of our children. Therefore, if, at any time, you have any suggestions or wish to discuss something about your child`s education or well-being, please do not hesitate to contact us through our school office.

We look forward to working in partnership with you.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Rita McDaid                                                                                                                              Head Teacher

*Encourage and enhance parents’ involvement in the partnership between home and school, to help children reach their full potential.
* Offer all pupils a wide range of challenging, progressive and relevant learning experiences within a safe supportive and nurturing environment which allows them to become independent learners, whilst developing skills for life, learning and work.
*Foster citizenship in pupils and raise their awareness of their roles and responsibilities, not only in the community but in the wider world.
