Bun Sgoil Mhorair

Lady Lovat Primary School is situated in the village of Morar facing the Morar Estuary and looks towards the islands of Rhum and Eigg.

Eigg and Rum from Morar

The catchment area is from Beoraidbeg in the North to Garramor in the South and East to Bracora. Lady Lovat Primary is a non-denominational school which accommodates one class ranging from P1 to P7. 

Lady Lovat, who performed the official opening of the school on 13 May 1915, laid the foundation stone on 20 April 1914.

In 1951 an annex was erected. It is a corrugated iron building containing two rooms, one of which serves as a dining room and the other as a music room. Hut

A new toilet block, attached to the main building, was added in 1983.  In 1999, the school house was refurbished to provide a classroom, an office, a staff room and toilets.

Portakabin A demountable classroom was put in place in October 2002 to cater for the rising school roll when a Gaelic Medium unit was opened in the school. This is situated at the rear of the main building. The Gaelic Medium Unit, which outgrew the space abailable at Lady Lovat, has now transferred to Mallaig Primary School.

The current school roll is 11.

Lady Lovat Primary does not have nursery provision - the English and Gaelic nurseries are situated in Mallaig Primary School. Regular liaison is established with both nurseries and the pre-school children who will attend Lady Lovat Primary visit the school in June. This visit is made up of a week of morning sessions.

The school has a family atmosphere. Pupils are encouraged to participate in all school activities.

Any parent who is considering the school for his/her child is welcome to visit at any time, by arrangement, in order to meet the Head Teacher and to look around the school.

  • As the school has no hall, the pupils travel by the local bus service to Mallaig Primary School for PE lessons equipped with gym bag containing the above PE items.

  • A swimming kit is also necessary as the children have swimming lessons as part of their PE timetable.

It is very important for parents to label their children’s clothing so that any lost articles can be returned immediately. 


The curriculum is divided into 7 main areas:



Environmental Studies

Expressive Arts

Religious and Moral Education

Health Education

Personal and Social Development

Although the above subjects are sometimes taught separately, many are integrated particularly through Environmental Studies. The curriculum is organized in such a way that there are opportunities for individual group and class learning. Pupils are encouraged to take pride in their work, complete all tasks (where possible) and to take care of books and equipment. Above all it is hoped that pupils will enjoy all learning experiences and develop skills and knowledge about the world they live in.

The National Curriculum for pupils aged 5 - 14 aims at progression. Pupils work through a series of targets, these targets are set out in six levels of increasing demand.

LEVEL A     should be attainable in the course of P1 - P3 by almost all pupils.

LEVEL B     should be attainable by some pupils in P3, but certainly by most in P4

LEVEL C     should be attainable in the course of P4 - P6 by most pupils in P5

LEVEL D     should be attainable by some pupils in P5 - P6, but certainly by most on P

LEVEL E     should be attainable by some pupils in P7 - S1 but certainly by most in S2  

LEVEL F     should be attainable, in part by some pupils, and completed by a few pupils, in the course of Primary 7 to  S2
