Georgetown Primary School is situated in Dumfries. The school roll is currently 342. The school has 12 classes for children from Primary 1 to Primary 7, as well as a 50 place nursery. A recent addition to the school is a unit for children with Special Educational Needs.
At Georgetown children are encouraged to reach their potential and every effort is made to reward positive behaviour and attitudes, with reward systems in place at every stage of the school.
Pupils at Georgetown Primary School are asked to take responsibility for their learning environment. We have a pupil council made up of seven Primary 7 pupils who were elected by their peers. The pupil council meet regularly, with a member of the management. An active Eco-School Committee, made up of pupils from different stages of the school, strive to improve the schools environment and grounds.
