Logie Primary School
We are a small, rural primary school on the outskirts of Forres. The school serves Dunphail, a scattered hamlet of the parish of Edinkillie. The catchment area of the school stretches from the Altyre Estate, south of Forres, to the Highland border. There are a number of children who choose to come to school from outside the catchment area and use the school bus and/or taxi to travel into school from the local town.
Three buildings make up our school - the main building, canteen and hall. The main school building has three classroom areas, one of which is used as a gallery and workshop space. The hall is used for PE, Drama, Music and Assemblies.
We have an incredible outdoor learning space, with a wide range of surfaces and spaces to explore. These include a tarmac area surrounding the school with basketball nets, large loose parts and giant chess as well as a grassed football/hockey pitch. We also have a small grass area which contains an amazing range of playground equipment and a willow tunnel. This leads to a wooded area which children know as the 'Jabbies', where they can play games such as hide and seek. We also have an allotment, a quiet area, an outside classroom and a fenced-off pond/nature area.
Pupils are in multi composite classes which at present are P1-3 and P4-7. We consider this to be an asset as the children benefit from peer support through working with children of different ages, and helps to build a strong, caring community. When appropriate, we carry out activities as a whole school.
