From the Head Teacher
Welcome to our school website. I am very proud to be able to share with you the
range of fantastic opportunities and new developments at Tealing Primary School.
Tealing Primary School is a community-centred, rural school in Angus. We are very
fortunate to have extensive outdoor spaces comprising of hard court areas and a
large grassed pitch. We have also recently had an outdoor classroom built to support
outdoor learning activities.
At Tealing, we believe that children should develop responsible attitudes and be
partners in their learning with opportunities to ask questions, seek answers and
solve-problems as they grow and develop. We make excellent use of our rural
context with children able to develop skills outdoors, including growing and
harvesting their own produce.
This year, the children, staff and wider community have worked together to create a pond in our
This will provide greater opportunities for learning outdoors as well as supporting wildlife;
creating a new environment for plants and animals to thrive in.
Children demonstrate that they are confident, effective contributors through engagement in our
pupil-led groups. We have high expectations and aspirations at Tealing, helping us to be
successful learners and to enjoy a number of achievements which we will share on this website.
The school is very well supported by a strong Parent Council, our wider parent body,
local community members and Community Council. Very strong links are made with the local
community through monthly Community Cafés and partnership working with various companies.
We believe that education is a partnership between home, school and the community
and we value the interest and support of our stakeholders.
I hope that this website will provide you with plenty of information about our school
and what your children engage in whilst here. It will grow and develop over time and
we would be grateful for any contributions or suggestions you may have.
We are very proud to have been shortlisted for the Nature of Scotland 'Youth and Education Award'. This highlights the dedication of all children, staff and our community to learning and living more sustainably and to conserving nature.
We are also delighted to have been included in one of Scotland's Enterprising Schools Interesting Practice examples.
