Primary


A very warm welcome to Morna, to those of you who are already part of our amazing school and also to everyone visiting us for the first time!

Morna is known for its supportive and familiar feel and it is something you sense as soon as you enter the school gates. The biggest strength of our school is the strong and trusting relationships that are fostered here. It is what makes coming to school such an enjoyable experience for students and staff alike. Our school is growing every year but our friendly, welcoming atmosphere remains.

There are the highest of expectations in terms of behaviour, academic progress and enjoyment from all of us – teachers, students and parents. Everyone is encouraged to make the most of their own potential and talents. Whether in the classroom or in a talent show, sports event, poetry competition or the school production, everyone is given their moment to shine.

In the Primary School, our curriculum is very important to us. It is full of positive experiences that our students will remember. We ensure our children develop all the skills they need to be confident, independent and successful learners.

We deliver the UK National Curriculum through creative topics. For example, in the Chocolate topic, students learn about nutrition in Science, develop writing skills in English whilst studying Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and research trade and the climates of chocolate-producing countries in Geography. Stimulating, exciting and well-resourced lessons mean children become fully absorbed in our cross-curricular approach to learning.

Our aim is to spark a desire for life-long learning in our children. By including multiple curricula subjects in each topic, school is made relevant and meaningful for our children. We use a variety of approaches to explore and deliver our topics to stimulate our children to become inquisitive and passionate learners. You can find out more about the topics we are teaching this term using the links below.

If you would like any more information about our school or would like to arrange a visit please contact us.

Kind regards,

Fiona Robertson
Head of Primary
