Our School Motto is BELIEVE•ACHIEVE

Sciennes Primary School’s Values and Vision have been updated in 2017-2018. Grateful thanks to Convener of Parent Council Communications Group, Mrs Emma Kirk, who has provided sterling and inspirational support by leading consultations with staff and pupils, beginning with a superb scoping session for all staff in August 2017. Emma, our Pupil Council and P7 Captains began to advance the promotion of our updated Values within the wider school community in the summer term 2018.

VISION, VALUES and AIMS

Staff and pupils have consulted annually to review and agree our Vision, Values and Aims. In 2016-2017 we determined to explore in detail and reach consensus on how these could be updated to reflect the essence of our school in a meaningful and also memorable way. We are indebted to Mrs Emma Kirk, Parent Council Communications Group Convenor, for her extraordinary expertise and support.
