A warm welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Kellands Primary School. We hope you enjoy looking around our site and getting to know our school and community, and that our partnership together will be positive, beneficial and enjoyable.

Our vision for Kellands is that it is a place, ‘Where Everybody is Somebody’ and we put emotional wellbeing at the heart of learning. We inspire all to be Kind, Respectful and Responsible, developing confident individuals, lifelong learners and effective contributors. The school is at the heart of Inverurie and we hope that pupils take a sense of great pride from attending Kellands Primary and in turn contribute positively to the local context.

At Kellands Primary we have developed a strong and caring whole school community, which has helped us go from strength to strength. We are heartened to hear comments made from partners and visitors on finding a friendly warm ethos throughout the school, a strong ‘family’ feel, and a positive team spirit. Our thoughtful and supportive staff ensure our children are at the centre of everything we do and our learning environment takes account of the whole child and their mental and emotional readiness to learn. We actively engage our children through play, enquiry, risk taking and creativity taking account of the children’s interests, the local environment and global contexts.

We have been very well supported through our partnerships with partner providers, local businesses, parents and local organisations.  We hope you find opportunities to support the school in ways you find interesting, meaningful and appropriate; becoming involved in school life as much or as little as you can.  We greatly appreciate and need this continued support.  Working together we want to ensure all our children believe in themselves and their abilities, aspire to be the best they can be, and enjoy learning so they can go on to achieve their dreams and goals.

If you have any questions or queries or would like further information please do not hesitate to contact the school by phone or by e-mail and we look forward to working together over the coming years and welcoming you to the Kellands family.

In April 2023, a team of inspectors from Education Scotland visited our school and worked closely with our children, the SLT and staff, as well as talking to parents/carers and outside agencies that work closely with the school. You can read the Inspection Report, Summarised Inspection Findings (SIF) and Additional Inspection Evidence (AIE) documents here. These are also available from the Education Scotland website.

As always, we are immensely proud of our school and all of you that bring it to life.
