Welcome to Farr Primary School. It is with great pleasure that I will be leading the learning as Head Teacher. We have a wonderful team at Farr and together we will ensure your child has a positive learning experience, building on skills and knowledge through a challenging and creative curriculum.
As a staff we are responsible for the care and learning of every individual and we strive to meet these needs in a sensitive and inclusive way. We want our pupils to be confident individuals, responsible citizens, successful learners and effective contributors, with a positive mindset about their abilities in all areas of learning and life.
The involvement of parents and carers is essential for the continued development of our school and the learning of each pupil. Over the year there will be many opportunities to get involved in the life of the school, including parent workshops, learning conversations, school fetes and theme days. We value the partnerships with parents and want to ensure these remain positive, helping to ensure your child reaches their potential. If, at any time, you have concerns regarding your child and their learning, please contact their class teacher in the first instance and they will be able to discuss all aspects of your child’s education with you.
Farr Primary School is supported by our Parent Council and Farr School And Nursery Supporters (FANS) who organise regular meetings and events. You are invited to attend these meetings, with no commitment to attend every meeting, to support the learning and development of the school. It is a great opportunity to share your ideas, views and hear what is going on in the school.
I look forward to working with you and your child.
Miss Kirsty Guthrie
