Welcome !!!

Mile-End School caters for children from Nursery to Primary 7. It is co-educational and non denominational. We serve an area at the west end of Aberdeen City comprising both council and private housing.

The school was opened as a primary school in 1903 and is traditionally constructed of Aberdeen granite. All teaching areas within the main building are contained in one four-storey building built round a central open area.

  • We hope that your child’s stay here will be a happy and profitable one. Our goal is to provide an interesting and stimulating environment, which will encourage our pupils to explore a wide variety of experiences.
  • This, we hope, will give each child the confidence and self-esteem to reach his or her own potential in a secure and happy atmosphere.
  • We look forward to working in partnership with you to achieve this goal.
  • We hope that this partnership will ensure that your child receives the fullest benefit from his or her time with us at Mile-End School.


Extracts from a report in the Aberdeen Journal


"Today there will be opened a large and handsome school, built at Mile-End by Aberdeen School Board. To meet the wants of the rapidly growing population of the North West district of the city. The new building is meant to take the place of Rubislaw School. Accordingly, Mr J.F.Cruickshank, the able headmaster of that school, with his 1020 scholars, leaves a  building in which much good  work has been done, to  take possession of the spacious and splendid edifice at Mile   -End.

The new school at Mile -End is a square, massive looking building of three stories  from designs by Mr A.H.L.Mackinnon, architect  Internally the woodwork and entire fittings and furnishings are of the most modern character and the School Board has not erred in their provision for the comfort and convenience of teachers and scholars alike."

enabling the community to participate in learning



Aberdeen City Council is responsible for the implementation of this statute.

The Act - often called The Parents’ Charter - allows parents to approach the school of their choice to request admission for their child. If the school has spaces, and there are no mitigating factors, a place will be given to the child. Where problems arise the case will be passed to the local education officer for further action. Further details may be had from the Head Teacher if you wish additional information.

Aberdeen City Council aims to provide equality of access to educational opportunities.

The school supports this policy by promoting equal opportunities in all areas of the school’s work.. The ethos of the school encourages mutual respect and good relations amongst all in the school community.

The school curriculum encourages the investigation of different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. In Primary Five all pupils become members of our Culture Club which focuses on the different cultures and backgrounds of our school community members.

We follow the Aberdeen City Multi-Cultural and Anti-Racist Guidelines which state,

" Multi cultural and anti racist education must be seen as an integral part of the learning process for all." In 1997 the school won the Anne Frank Award for work in this area.


To support their aim to provide equal opportunities for all children Aberdeen City Council provides additional teaching for pupils for whom English is a second language. Children are given support in this area as appropriate to each individual.

If additional help is required for an individual pupil referral may be made to the English as a Second Language Unit at Linksfield School. Help may be provided for pupils at the Unit or tutor time may be provided in Mile-End School.


Welcome to Mile-End Nursery Unit

Mile-End Nursery relocated to the Midstocket Road site on 4th June 2007.  Two primary classrooms at the school were adapted to form a semi open plan area for the Sunflower and Ladybird Nurseries. 

 The nursery area is structured to allow us to provide a meaningful, structured curriculum for all the children in the nursery.  The nursery staff work closely together to ensure quality of provision.  They also work in partnership with parents to allow each child to fulfil his/her potential.

 Nursery places are available for children in their pre-school and ante pre-school years.  The nursery staff ensure a differentiated curriculum to meet the needs of each child in the class.

All families and visitors enter the nursery by walking through the playground and then walking up the path in the nursery garden, to the nursery entrance.

The Pre-School Curriculum


The pre-school curriculum has five areas –

·       Emotional and personal development

·       Communication and language

·       Knowledge and understanding of the world

·       Expressive and aesthetic development

·       Physical development and movement


The nursery classroom is resourced to provide a structured curriculum for each child, based on the five areas of the pre-school curriculum. The nursery staff will plan, evaluate and assess each child’s progress in these areas.  Weekly plans are displayed on the nursery notice boards, sharing the information with parents.

Each child will have reached a particular stage in development when arriving at nursery.  The nursery staff will assess the stage your child has reached in his/her development and will then plan for your child, allowing your child to be challenged and helped to fulfil his/her potential.

Each child progresses at different times in different ways.  We do not automatically expect a child to be able to do something at a particular age.  Discussion with parents and nursery staff will build up a picture of each child, identifying areas where he/she would benefit from specific input.

Aims of the Nursery 

·       To provide a warm, friendly atmosphere within a bright, cheerful environment, where children can feel secure, cared for and valued.

·       To provide a challenging framework for learning which will promote –

                  Emotional and personal development

                  Communication and language

                  Knowledge and understanding of the world

                  Expressive and aesthetic development

                  Physical development and movement


·  To recognise the needs of the individual and to meet those needs within the nursery context.

·  To communicate and liaise with other agencies and with neighbouring schools and pre-school groups.

·  To work in partnership with parents/carers for the benefit of the children, valuing each others


·  To liaise with the community and to use the local area to promote learning.
