We aim to foster in our children values and attitudes which will serve them well throughout their whole lives as we firmly believe that the span of years between four and twelve is most formative and is filled with enthusiasm for living. This is achieved by encouraging and channelling energies into the development of a balanced and mature person, able to function on his or her own and with others, displaying social values of benefit to the child and to the community at large.
Within this section you will find detailed the aims for the school and these reflect the ethos created by all staff and pupils in the school.

In Killermont Primary we aim to:

  • Provide a safe, stimulating, inclusive and happy learning environment where children’s wellbeing is a priority.
  • Raise attainment and achievement by providing a broad and relevant curriculum which supports, challenges and motivates all learners to succeed.
  • Ensure children know about rights, can exercise their rights, have their voices heard and valued, valued and can recognise the rights of others.
  • Develop successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.
  • Foster positive and productive partnerships collaborating with parents, outside agencies and the wider community.
  • Support the professional development of staff in order to provide a high quality learning and teaching environment.
