Welcome to our school

Pathhead Primary is very proud of its inclusive, welcoming atmosphere, the dedicated staff and the close relationship we have with parents and the community.

We envisage the school to be a safe, dynamic, supportive and exciting environment where everyone feels motivated to give of their best, where people are not afraid to take risks and where they are empowered to achieve greatness.

We celebrate success and achievement regularly, everyone has high expectations of themselves and is given the opportunity to obtain excellence. The school strives to encourage a participative culture in which children have a clear voice and where they are encouraged to be responsible citizens, showing respect for themselves and others. This vision is shared and discussed with all, to enable us to feel valued, to give us a goal to aspire to and measure success by.

There is always an open-door at Pathhead Primary and should you require further information, please do not hesitate to come and ask. We believe that the key to successful achievement, the best possible outcomes and experiences for all learners come about when school and parents / carers work together and I am sure this will be the case for you and your family.

Yours sincerely


Ms Patricia Johnston
