Balgowan Primary School


At Balgowan, we foster a life-long love of learning by ensuring that all children experience a value-centred curriculum resulting in a vibrant, happy, and inclusive school where every child can thrive.

We are proud of our traditions and history, while simultaneously being forward-looking and highly ambitious for every child.

The school is rated Good by Ofsted;

“Leaders ensure that the curriculum strongly promotes the school’s core values. Pupils respect themselves and others and are well prepared for life in modern Britain.”

Taking a “trip” on Balgowan’s Ship of Values develops children who are tolerant, resilient, utilise their inner drive and acquire a positive mindset. This allows exciting goals to be set and children who can visualise positive outcomes for the future. In short, preparing them to become citizens of the 21st century.

The School’s motto: Be kind, work hard, make friends, reinforces the ethos of our school.
