At Tinto Primary School we recognise that providing a happy, stimulating and challenging environment is only the beginning of achieving our aims.
We endeavour to help children further develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes which they have acquired in their pre-school years by:
Establishing and maintaining a school ethos in which children are motivated to learn;
Ensuring children are clear on what they have to learn;
Fostering good relationships with peers, parents and others;
Having high but attainable expectations of pupils in respect of both academic performance and good behaviour;
Providing tasks which are well matched to the needs, aptitudes and prior knowledge of pupils;
Ensuring that pupils are encouraged to become independent, resourceful and responsible learners who can work purposefully on their own and with others;
Ensuring that assessment is an integral part of classroom work and provides diagnostic information which informs further teaching.
Tinto Primary School is a non-denominational establishment providing education to male and female pupils. Along with classes covering Primary 1 to Primary 7, a nursery is provided for children from the age of 3 years.
The premises may be available for let out-with school hours. Conditions of let and applications for lets should be made to Community Education.
The school is an integral part of the community and at all appropriate times endeavours to participate in community events. These include an active after school club, use of the local church for services, involvement in Tinto Village Day.
