Muirtown Primary School

Muirtown Primary School

Muirtown Primary School is situated in a residential area on the north-west side of Inverness overlooking the Moray Firth. The roll at present is approximately 275 comprising a Nursery Class and 9 classes from Primary 1 – 7.  Phase  I of the building, which opened in 1976, is of semi‑open plan design and comprises classroom areas, dining, medical and administrative facilities and a gymnasium which incorporates a tea‑bar for community use. Phase II of the building opened in August 1980. The Nursery Class and three P1 – P3 classes re located in Phase I and the remaining six P3 - P7 classes occupy Phase II of the building.  Bright Sparks (pre school group) now meet in a room in the school building.

Muirtown Primary School is an equal opportunities school. To ensure that all children have access to a full range of activities classes are grouped as far as possible according to stages, within teaching areas, thereby providing the flexibility required to organise and instruct in the many varied activities from which the children learn.

A Specialist teacher visits the school for Music.  Instruction is provided in Chanter, String and Brass.  There is provision within the school for Support for Learning.


The curriculum describes everything  which is learned and taught in school. The curriculum is balanced to allow a child to develop his/her full potential, both educationally and socially.

The main areas of the curriculum are English Language, Mathematics, Environmental Studies, Information and Communication Technology, Personal, Social and Health Education, Expressive Arts, Religious and Moral Education and Modern Languages.

All of the teaching in Muirtown Primary follows the Scottish 5 – 14 Guidelines.


As many of the parents who are reading this booklet for the first time will be parents of future primary 1 children we have decided to include some information about education at the early stages.

The main aim of the school's induction programme for entrants is to ensure an easy, trouble~free and happy transition from home to School.

The children who have attended the Nursery Class in Muirtown Primary School will have become familiar with the School and will already feel secure in its environment. In the term prior to your child entering primary 1 opportunities will be given for you to attend informal workshops where you will be given an insight into the various activities which take place in the infant classroom.

Much of the work in the infant classroom is achieved through the child being given a wide array of practical experiences. The infant classroom is often an area full of bustling activity. When your child comes home during these first crucial weeks ask him/her about what he/she has been doing. Perhaps more than at any time in your child's school career his/her attitude will be influenced by your attitude. Share with your child his/her experiences and remember - never hesitate to approach the School if there is anything we can clarify or help with.

At Early Stages, Classroom Assistants support the promotion of effective learning and teaching under the direction and supervision of teachers.


In Muirtown Primary all children are expected to wear school uniform and show a pride in wearing it. The uniform consists of Sweat Shirts, Polo Shirts and grey or black trouser or skirts. Fleeces are also available. Regular orders are sent to our suppliers and a small store is kept in school for children who enrol during the session.

In Nursery the sweatshirts worn are red.

In primary 1 – 5 the sweatshirts and fleeces worn are royal blue.

In primary 6-7 the sweatshirts and fleeces worn are black.

Polo shirts are white or black and all garments have the school logo.

As these items are identical parents are asked to ensure all clothing is clearly marked with the child’s name.

Children should bring soft shoes suitable for wearing to gym and these will be worn at all times inside the building.

Shorts and t-shirts must be brought for gym days. Football strips should not be worn in school.

A clothing allowance is available on an annual basis to those parents on Income Support, Family Credit or Job Seekers Allowance.


Cross Country/Athletics  

The Cross Country/Athletics Club meets each week in the school hall from   3.00pm to 4.00pm.  Children attending must have completed a permission slip and returned it to school. Anyone wishing to join should contact Mrs A MacLean at the school office for further information.  The swap from Cross Country to Athletics will take place after the Easter Break.

Thank you to Mrs A MacLean and Mr E Conway for giving up their time to make this activity possible.
