School Aims

After the extensive consultation with parents, pupils and staff before the summer on ‘What matters most to you in Milngavie Primary’ when the whole school’s community circled the 5 words indicating what is important to them and offered answers to the 3 questions displayed in the foyer, we have refreshed and developed our Vision, Values and Aims.

Our vision is: “Aim High At Milngavie” At Milngavie Primary School and Nursery we aim to provide education and care of the highest quality which fosters creativity and confidence, develops every child’s skills, personality and talents and ensures they can achieve their full potential academically, emotionally and physically in a safe, happy and motivating learning environment which is at the heart of our community.

At Milngavie Primary we believe in CHILDREN.  

CHILDREN give us our values: Creativity, Happiness, Inspiration Love, Dream, Respect, Equality, Nurture. At Milngavie Primary we aim to


  •  · To build a caring school ethos based on inclusion, fairness and respect for ourselves and others, promoting the health and wellbeing for the whole of the school community.
  • · To provide stimulating, challenging and meaningful learning experiences, meeting the needs and aspirations of all our children enabling them to face the challenges of the future.
  • · To foster interest and enjoyment in learning, motivating children to think creatively and independently to become successful and confident lifelong learners.
  •  · To develop positive, productive partnerships that are valued and recognised by our children, staff, parents and the wider community.
  • · To encourage responsible attitudes towards the environment and instil an awareness of our role as global citizens.
