Cluny School

Welcome !!!

Cluny School is in a beautiful setting lying north of the village of Sauchen. It is co-educational, non-denominational and provides education for primary stages one to seven.

There are four classrooms, one hall and one library/resource room. Surrounding the school are ample, secure play areas consisting of grass playing fields and tarmacadam playground.

Cluny School Aims

In Cluny School, we aim to provide a happy, safe and secure environment. We aim to equip pupils with foundation skills, attitudes and expectations necessary to prosper in a changing society and to encourage creativity and ambition through lifelong learning. We will do this by raising standards of achievement at all levels of learning through a rigorous system of quality assurance.

At Cluny School our School Aims take account of the Quality Indicators in “How Good is our School”, National and Local priorities and Health and Safety Issues leading to a quality education for all.

1. Curriculum: Through appropriate consultation with parents, pupils and staff, we will provide and deliver a broad, balanced curriculum ensuring integration, continuity and progression in line with the National 5-14 Guidelines. Courses and programmes provide support and guidance for teachers and other staff.

2. Attainment: We aim to foster and maintain high standards of achievement through a system of baseline assessment, early intervention, target setting, pupil tracking and national testing.

3. Learning and Teaching: We aim to provide a learning environment, which stimulates and motivates pupils to use a variety of teaching approaches appropriate to the needs of each child. This will encourage active involvement and independent thinking with due regard to the differing abilities and aptitudes pupils may have. Teachers will plan effective programmes and will incorporate assessment procedures which will identify pupils’ needs and assist the teacher in planning ‘next steps’ in learning. We will ensure that parents and pupils are informed of progress and that the views of parents and pupils are taken into account

4. Support for Pupils: We aim to provide a caring, supportive environment in which the educational, intellectual, emotional, physical and social needs of individual children are met. We recognise the need to maximize opportunities for all children, regardless of needs, linking with other agencies as appropriate.

5. Ethos: We aim to encourage a sense of identity and pride in the school and promote an ethos of achievement through high expectations and use of praise. We will encourage pupils to be courteous and well mannered, with the expectation of high standards of behaviour and discipline. Pupils will be involved in decision-making about the life and work of the school encouraging an atmosphere of equality and fairness for all. Positive steps will be taken to enable all parents to participate effectively in their children’s care and education - through effective means of communication.

6. Resources: We aim to make the best possible use of facilities and resources available, both within the school and the wider community. Deploy all staff in a suitable manner and have in place an appropriate Staff Development and Review programme.

7. Management, leadership and quality assurance: We aim to produce and implement a development plan and processes for self-evaluation and monitoring to support the work of the school with high quality management of staff, communication, administration and organisation.


Induction Programme

Each year, Aberdeenshire Council places an advertisement in the Local Press in January/February which gives information regarding enrolment of these children who will be five on or before the end of the following February.

Parents should note, however, that there is no obligation to enrol children until the August AFTER their fifth birthday.

The transition from home to school can be a worrying time for children - and Mums! In Cluny School we make every effort to ensure that the children arrive at school with anticipation rather than trepidation! During the summer term, new entrants make two visits to the school. This gives them the opportunity to meet their class peers and other children. Parents will have the opportunity to meet the Head Teacher and the Class Teacher to clarify any areas of concern and to discuss arrangements for starting school.

The infant teacher visits the Nursery at Echt and the playgroup at Millbank to meet the entrants and to get to know them in familiar surroundings.

When the children commence attendance there will be a 'staggered intake' for the first few days. This allows the infant teacher to get to know the children individually before they attend as a whole class.

For the first few weeks new pupils attend for the morning session only.


Our curriculum is based on the Scottish Executive Education Department's 5-14 Guidelines.

The 5-14 programme is the Government's review of the curriculum and assessment for pupils in primary schools and the first two years of secondary schools.

The curriculum is made up of experiences and activities necessary to pupils' development. There are five areas of the curriculum at primary school level.
