Message from the Headteacher
On behalf of the staff and pupils, I would like to offer a warm welcome to Sunnybank School.
Our aim is to provide an environment where our pupils are happy, healthy and are given a high quality education, which allows them to achieve their full potential. We are a nurturing school and promote a positive learning ethos.
It is our belief that children learn best when there is close co-operation between home and school and we value parents/carers as partners in the education of the children entrusted to our care. We offer opportunities for you to be meaningfully involved in school life and we are appreciative of your support. For further information on our school please see our School Handbook on the Downloads page of our website.
We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is structured to develop children’s knowledge and understanding, skills and attitudes in all dimensions – academically, aesthetically, physically, morally and socially.
School staff are fully committed to raising standards of attainment across all curricular areas and they use their expertise to develop programmes of work suited to their pupils’ needs and abilities. Pupil progress is assessed on a regular basis and programmes of study are monitored and evaluated to ensure we are providing learning experiences of the highest quality. Staff are committed to the process of self-evaluation and continuing professional development. They attend in-service courses and participate in professional development programmes, which enhance their knowledge of current educational philosophy and practice.
Education is a lifelong process and we see ourselves as a link in the chain, building on the experiences our pupils bring to our school. We regularly liase with staff from nursery and pre-school centres and with our colleagues in the secondary sector. This ensures a smooth transition for all our pupils as they move through the education system. Our link secondary school is St Machar Academy and information on the school can be found on their school website – https://st-macharacademy.aberdeen.sch.uk/
Sunnybank School values its position in the community and we welcome all pupils and their parents/carers to our school.
