Award Winning School

BELMONT Primary School, Stranraer, has just received a coveted Schools’ Curriculum Award for the quality of their working relationship with the members of the community.

The school was visited by two assessors appointed by the Schools’ Curriculum Award, an independently-sponsored body that for 20 years has validated the award.

Head teacher Bill Burns commented "In our submission we had to detail all our activities we as a school organise with various sections of our community. These included such initiatives as Starting Maths and Reading Together; Belmont Toy Library’ Belmont Summer Playscheme; and our PTA-sponsored Expressive Arts Club.

"Although the school faces many of the same pressures confronting other schools, we found it invaluable to list the many ways in which our pupils’ learning is directly or indirectly enhanced by our partnership with so many different individuals and organisations in our community.

"When the assessors came, we had many visitors to share examples of the ways, in which they support our school, helping to make it an even more successful and stimulating learning environment".
