  • As a Roman Catholic primary school we recognise the need to educate our pupils within a moral framework that ensures Christian values of tolerance, respect, justice, peace and a love of God.  Additionally we acknowledge the importance of fostering genuine -partnerships with parents and the wider community through involving them in the whole life of the school.

Primary Education is a vital part of your child’s life and we at St Thomas’s are very much aware of our responsibilities. We aim to promote the development of skills, knowledge and understanding in the following curricular areas:


We achieve this aim by offering a broad and balanced curriculum based on the 5-14 National guidelines issued by the Scottish Office Education Department. These guidelines ensure that all curricular areas are covered and that specific targets are achieved as each child moves through the school.

Our school demands a high standard of progressive, efficient and caring teaching from our staff and an equally high standard moves through the school.

Our school demands a high standard of progressive, efficient and caring teaching from our staff and an equally high standard of academic work from our pupils.


Continual checks are made on every child’s progress to ensure that they are working to the best to the of their ability. Information about progress is recorded, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics, progress is also monitored by:

  • P1 assessment/early intervention
  • Continues assessment by the class teacher on a daily basis
  • Regular testing in phonics, spelling and mathematics
  • P3 screening
  • Standardised testing in reading, writing and mathematics to ensure that our children are progressing at the appropriate pace


Reporting to parents

These are two main opportunities in the school year for you to discuss your child’s progress with his/her class teacher. These are held around November and April/May. Parent’s evenings usually start at the end of the school day and are appointment based. A short written report is issued before the November evening and a more detailed report is issued before the April/May evening. However, it is important that communication about your child’s progress takes place throughout the year and this is managed by giving homework on a regular basis. You are encouraged to keep in regular contact with the school in order to help the staff monitor your child’s progress. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the staff as soon as possible and they will be glad to assist you in whatever way possible.
