About Our School

Welcome to The Central School.

I welcome your family to our school community and look forward to working with you during the forthcoming years. During your child’s time in the school we will do our best to provide your child with a happy and rewarding primary education.

The Central School community, has always been an important part of the Highland Capital, Inverness.  As the oldest primary school, we are able to look back over nearly two hundred years of change.  From a small town at the centre of the Highlands to the millennium city we live in today, we have seen our population grow rapidly.

Situated on the west side of the River Ness, we are privileged to serve a diverse community of many nationalities and cultures. This brings a great vibrancy to our school where we learn together and from each other.

Learning and teaching is at the very heart of what we do each and every day. We follow the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence and provide learning experiences that help all pupils to develop in the four capacities of Successful Learner; Confident Individual; Effective Contributor and Responsible Citizen.

Working in partnership with parents and the wider school community is really important to our whole team.   The school considers it very important that good relationships exist between parents and staff. We wish to work in partnership with our parents and look forward to developing positive home school links. By taking an active interest in your child’s work both in school and at home and participating in the life of the school you will help your child make the best possible progress and help them to fulfil their potential. Your child’s teacher and I will always be willing to discuss any aspects of your child’s education.

We value and welcome all  contributions from our families and friends and look forward to your involvement in the life and work of our school community.

The school is supported by our Parent Council who organise regular meetings and events. Your involvement in such meetings is always valued and appreciated.

If you require further information please contact the school to make an appointment.

Kind Regards
