Welcome to our school

Welcome to St. Albert’s Primary School            

On behalf of all members, I am delighted to welcome you and your child to St Albert’s Primary School Community. I look forward to working in partnership with you in the coming months and years.

Our main aim is to provide children with a lifelong love of learning and ambition to achieve. We are raising attainment and encouraging our pupils to look ahead and foster the skills they will need to be successful. These include; resilience, confidence enthusiasm and courage. We look to all our parents and pupils to be highly aspirational.

St Albert’s Primary School is situated within the Pollokshields area in the South Side of Glasgow. Our school is Multi Cultural and we have many different languages and cultures represented here. We foster open dialogue on diversity and all our pupils, staff and parents respect and understand the richness and benefits of a diverse school.

We believe in partnership and family learning. We will support you to understand how best to support your child with their learning. Throughout the year I hope you will take up the many opportunities there are to become involved in the life of the school. You will be made most welcome. We are always open to new ideas and as Head Teacher I am available to you to discuss these and aspect of your child’s journey here.

We are fortunate to have amazing school grounds which we use to foster learning and raise attainment. Play is also crucial to learning and our staff create excellent opportunities for play. Sustainability is important to us and we strive to create an environment that promotes an understanding of the world around us and how to make meaningful connections with our surroundings.

Last session, through the hard work of the staff and pupils our school won a Scottish Education award for Creativity and the national award for Social Enterprise. Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship are strengths of our school. We seek to find new and interesting ways of learning and raising attainment.

As a Catholic school we are open to interfaith dialogue and prayer. Our pupils have opportunities to explore their faith and the faith of others through rich experiences and conversations. We are proud of all our achievements and proud of our children and our school every day!

Above all we will provide your child with high quality learning experiences that will support them to maximise their achievements and attainment. Learning will be challenging and all pupils are expected to aim high.

What makes St Albert’s special is the warm, supportive and nurturing atmosphere and a strong ethos of inclusion, faith, respect and understanding. I am sure you and your child(ren) will enjoy and benefit from all of their experiences here.
