The school roll is currently 400 pupils. There are two classes at each stage.
The present staffing complement is 18.27FTE. We also have visiting staff from the Authority Network Learning Support Team and the Bilingual Service.
There are a large number of placing requests, of which many are from Glasgow. We have a large number of bilingual pupils. We operate a policy of inclusion and equality and so have two SEN assistants and six classroom assistants. We also have a full time bilingual assistant.
The school has excellent links with the local community and has a very supportive School Board and PTA. The school has a devolved budget from the local authority: a major part of this is utilised in support of the school plan.
