Dunbar Primary School Improvement Plan and S&Q Report

Please find below Dunbar Primary School Improvement Plan 2017-18 and the Standards and Quality Report for 2016-17.

There are four main priorities in the plan listed below.

We have already made significant progress in priority one and two and are moving forward with the priorities three and four as National and Local guidance/ resources are issued.

Priority 1 : To raise the attainment in reading and close the gap in less able readers

Priority 2 : Improve the attainment and close the gap in numeracy and mathematics

Priority 3: Review H&WB programme to reflect need to support pupils emotional well-being and embed GIRFEC and SHANNARI

Priority 4 : To develop 1+2 Language across the whole school

If you wish to support the school on any aspect of our improvement plan we would be delighted to work with you.

John Muir Library

Dear Parents

As you will be aware we have  wonderful Libraries in both Campuses. This year we are targeting on further improving the Library in the John Muir Campus. As part of this improvement no books will be issued to children this week or next week as we will be undertaking a full stocktake of the books in the Library. If you could have a quick look at home to see if you have any unreturned books for the Library we would be grateful.

We will keep you updated about further improvements as they happen.

Charity Events

Today we dressed down to raise funds for childhood cancer & pupils treated themselves to a cake at break time for a small donation.  Thank you for providing such lovely treats for our cake stalls! We will let you know as soon as possible how much we raised.

The staff also held a Macmillan Coffee Morning (both at John Muir & Lochend Campus) & raised lots of money for this wonderful charity. Thank you very much to Dunbar Community Bakery for donating tasty treats to add to our selection!
