Sunnyside Primary opened in 1894 and until 1998 was housed in the original sandstone building. The school then moved to the present new accommodation comprising classrooms, library, and games/assembly hall.
Sunnyside Early Learning and Childcare Centre, a 40/24 place Centre, is housed in the old building and provides a safe, stimulating and attractive learning environment for 2, 3 and 4 year old children.
The top floor of the old building has two bright, attractive general purpose classrooms, a large resource room, office space and a meeting room.
Sunnyside Primary offers After School Clubs which support and extend pupils' learning and also offers many extra-curricular opportunities to pupils in arts and sporting activities.
The school has an active Parent Council who work hard on behalf of the school.
We maintain good links with the community.
Sunnyside's School Handbook is available to view or download via our website.
Sunnyside has active pupil groups – Pupil Council, Eco Committee, Prefects, Junior Road Safety Officers, WoW monitors, Dyslexia Group, Digital Monitors and Sports Committee who support the decision-making within the school.
We also have four Houses to which pupils and staff belong – Ben Cleuch, Ochil, Dumyat and Inglewood.
Children meet monthly to work together to make our school even better.
Staff, pupils and parents worked together to develop our school vision and the values that we will follow:
At Sunnyside Primary School, we believe in inclusion and equity for all. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn, to try new things, to make mistakes, to be able to learn from them and to be successful.
We should try to keep healthy and fit. We have the right to feel safe at school and should be able to ask for help and know that we will receive it. Bullying, of any kind, is not allowed and is not in keeping with our values. We should be respectful to each other and understand that everyone’s opinions should be heard. We are proud of our school and community.
Our Pupil Equity Fund priorities continue to be to:
Mrs Denise Penman, Headteacher, welcomes enquiries from prospective parents. She is always pleased to arrange for visitors to be shown around the school and have opportunity to discuss the work of the school.
