Fàilte don Bun-sgoil
Welcome to the Primary School

Welcome to the Glasgow Gaelic School Primary.

At Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu we strive to support our pupils to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society and eventually the world of work.

At the very heart of our school is the Gaelic language which binds us as a community. We would like all pupils, parents and school staff to be so proud of the language and to work together to ensure it continues to develop in many different ways.

I do hope that every child and parent will contribute to the life of our school over the next coming years and will feel happy, safe and proud of  Bun-Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu.

With every good wish.

Clàrachadh Bun-sgoile | Primary Enrolment

Every October we host an “Open Day” to provide information about the school, Gaelic Medium Education and the opportunities available for the pupils. The Primary DHT works closely with the Early Year Heads of Gaelic establishments to establish and implement (along with school staff) a transition programme throughout the year.


Aithris do Phàrantan | Reporting to Parents

All children are assessed both formally and informally throughout the year. This allows children and their teachers to identify their strengths and areas for improvement. A variety of assessment methods are used to enable staff to pass on information to parents about the progress of their child. Assessment records are kept by the class teacher and form the basis of discussion at Parents’ Evenings in November and May. A written report is sent to parents in term 3 each year.

If you have any concerns about your child’s progress do not hesitate to contact the school.


Taic do Dhaoine Òga | Support for Young People

The school has a duty to ensure that all pupils have equal access to the curriculum, with appropriate support for their needs if required. This applies to the content of lessons, teaching strategies and minor adaptations to the school environment. There are a wide range of factors which may act as a barrier to learning. We are committed to working closely with parents and carers to ensure that they are fully involved in any decisions about support for their children’s needs.

Conaltradh | Communication

At Bun-Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu we strongly encourage all parents to become involved in the education of their children. We are always ready to listen to suggestions for new ways of stimulating parental interest. We contact and involve parents in many ways.


Ionnsachadh Teaghlaich | Family Learning

In our school we provide family learning activities to allow children to practice and reinforce skills in literacy and numeracy as well as working in partnership with parents to support the children’s overall development. Family learning grids are sent home via Seesaw on a fortnightly basis and families can engage in tasks when it suits other home commitments. We do, however, encourage some daily input with phonics and reading practise with the younger children. A curriculum overview, distributed at the beginning of each term, provides information about the classwork to be covered across the eight curricular areas.


Gnìomhachdan Neo-churraicealach | Extra Curricular Activities

We provide a wide range of activities to extend the classroom knowledge of the pupils. Trips to museums, sport activities, exhibitions, concerts and practical workshops in science or dance or drama often feature throughout the school year.
