Our School

All our year groups from P1 to P7 are split into two classes, A and B. Classes start at 9.00am, finishing at 3.00pm.

Islesburgh Out of School Club collect children attending their club directly from school.

We have two early years classes which cater for pre-school children. Our morning session has a soft start time which means you can drop off your child anytime between 8.40am and 9.10am and finishes at 11.50am. The afternoon session starts at 12.40pm and has a soft finish time which means you can pick your child up anytime between 3.25 and 3.50pm.

Sound School Values and Aims

We believe that for education to be successful there must be a partnership between home, school and the wider community and we are constantly striving to improve this partnership. Every child in school is important and we aim to provide opportunities for all children to reach their full potential in a safe, stimulating and happy environment. Our school motto is "Dö dy best in aathing and lee-lang laer will be dy hansel" (Do your best in everything and lifelong learning will be your gift).

We can ask no more if pupils and staff within our school are doing their best. We value all kinds of success, not just academic achievement, and place an important value on the school being inclusive. We place great worth in team effort, which encompasses mutual respect, from all members of our school community.

Sound School’s aspiration is for all pupils to develop their capacities as successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society and at work, as embodied in the Scottish Government’s national initiative for all schools, “A Curriculum for Excellence.”

Pupil Council

Sound Primary School has a Pupil Council which allows pupils to voice their opinions and to work with staff on any matters causing concern or where they believe improvements can be made. More information is available on our Pupil Council page (currently still under construction).

Parent Council

The Parent Council is made up of parent members, co-opt member and an advisor and are regularly attended by local Councillors. The Parent Council meets approxiately seven times per year. More information is available on our Parent Council page.

Links with other Professionals

Sound School has close links with other Council departments and the local health service. Visiting professionals see children in school for speech therapy, health and dental screening. Prior notification is given to parents. We also liase with other professionals such as those from the behaviour support unit, educational psychology or social work in order that together we support the all round development of all children, where some specialist assistance or intervention is benefical.
