Mr Garry Graham

I’m Garry Graham and I will be working with you from August, 2017. I am delighted to have been afforded the opportunity to work with Milngavie Primary School and Early Learning and Childcare (ELC), building on the legacy afforded us by Linda Murphy.

 I bring with me a range of experiences from my time in education and my careers prior. This has included over 13 years in the role of Headteacher, supporting two schools with significant challenges. I very much hope to use these skills and experiences to support your school on its journey to becoming a centre of excellence. Having spent time getting to know the school and the staff in recent months, there are some areas we have identified as requiring focus. Whilst safeguarding, care and welfare and health and safety will be front and centre of our day-to-day routines, there are areas of priority that will be at the heart of our school’s development.

Curriculum: We will continue to work as a staff to create a flexible, progressive and responsive curriculum. Resources, planning, assessment and moderation all have a part to play in this. As a leadership team will be encouraging a more creative model of curriculum delivery within the context of teaching and learning. One area where you may see an early shift in focus is within social studies and interdisciplinary learning. It is important that we start to move away from some of the traditional topics that are being delivered and introduce learning opportunities that are relevant to children’s lives and current experiences in the modern world.
