Welcome to Greenrigg PS

We would like to warmly welcome you and your child to our school. We hope this will be the start of a long and happy partnership over the next seven years of your child's education with us here at Greenrigg and we are delighted to have you join our school family.

The move from nursery to primary school is a special and important time for children, parents and carers. On moving into Primary 1, your child will experience a wealth of new and exciting experiences. Greenrigg Primary School recognises this and provides a nurturing, caring and stimulating environment where we encourage all our learners to be brave, try their best and to enjoy all that Greenrigg Primary School has to offer.

I know this is a very worrying time for everyone, particularly if you have a child who is due to start school in August. Greenrigg Primary School strives to ensure that your child's transition to our school is positive, nurtured and supported particularly at this challenging time. Please see the outline of information of activities to prepare your child and your family for this 'big step.' We look forward to meeting you!
