Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you from our staff and children. At Oxgang, we aim to provide a safe, happy and caring environment where children are supported and encouraged to reach their fullest potential. We have high, but realistic expectations of our learners, both in terms of working hard in class and life outside the classroom. We encourage our pupils to take care of their surroundings, to be helpful and polite and be responsible citizens in our local community.

Oxgang Primary School is well established in the town of Kirkintilloch. We recently celebrated our 50th Birthday and have a strong reputation in the local area. We are truly a community school with positive local links to a number of businesses, nurseries, schools and services. We welcome parents and family members to our school on a regular basis and our pupils benefit enormously from the support they receive.

Achievement is our overarching aim and our standards of academic success and attainment are very good. We aim to develop your child’s skills across a range of subjects with a well-designed curriculum. In addition, we value wider achievement and offer a range of after school activities. Pupil leadership and participation is encouraged and celebrated and children are offered many opportunities to develop skills for learning, life and work.

I hope you will enjoy getting to know our school better by browsing through these pages. Please feel free to contact the school if you require any further information.

Miss Hannah Young
Head Teacher
