Aims, Objectives & Values

Spittal Primary School is situated in Rutherglen, within South Lanarkshire Council in Scotland. The school has seven classrooms, a gym hall, dining hall and several break out areas to enhance learning and teaching, alongside our playground, school garden and a pitch.

Children also require suitable indoor shoes such as plimsoles or plain black trainers, for moving around the school and PE.

PE Kit:
  • Shorts
  • T-shirt/polo shirt
  • Gym shoes (which could be your child's indoor shoes, if they are appropriate for running around in)
Please remember to put your child's name on all pieces of uniform, to ensure we can return these to you if they are misplaced.

If you require any support with accessing uniform, please email or phone the school and we will do what we can to help. If you would like to donate any school uniform your children have outgrown, please hand this in to the office and we will recycle this for future families requiring this. Thank you for your support!

About Us

Spittal nursery strives to provide a safe, nurturing environment for our early learners to develop and grow. Through the variety of different play experiences offered, children learn and develop social skills, early literacy and early numeracy skills while having fun with friends both in and outdoors on a daily basis.
Our staff are welcoming and approachable, and are available for daily contact with parents and carers during our morning drop off and afternoon collection.

Learning Journals

At Spittal Nursery, we use Learning Journals to share information about your child's day, post photos of their experiences and to provide a place where you can contact your child's keyworker. We will also send out any messages or important information using these. Make sure you speak to a member of our team when your child enrols, so we can help you access this.
