Welcome to Northside Primary School
Northside's Aims and Philosophy
At Northside School we believe that Every Child Matters. We provide a safe and healthy environment where pupils enjoy and achieve and make a positive contribution to the life of the school.
Northside School aims to develop well educated, happy and well rounded children who have developed a love of learning, independence, initiative and understanding of others.
We provide a supportive and caring environment where every child matters and where all cultures are respected and valued. We thrive in a multi-cultural community where working and co-operating with others is encouraged.
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is relevant to the age and experience of the children and in accordance with the National Curriculum strategies. We use teaching methods that motivate children to be actively engaged in their own learning and that promote self esteem and independence.
We encourage parents to take a full and active part in their child's development. Many opportunities exist for participating in school life and sharing information about your child's progress.
We beleive in a philosophy that maintains high standards of behaviour from the whole school community through positive expectations and a caring ethos.
