Carlogie Primary School
"My fundamental belief is that education must create an environment where children are leaders of their own learning. One where children are encouraged, motivated, valued and recognised for their contributions, ideas and opinions"
Type of school: Public

Social justice shapes Carlogie Primary School’s ethos and internal atmosphere, underpinning the way in which students, staff and the wider community interact with one another. The golden thread that has woven all of this together is the school’s identity as a Fairtrade School, where students and staff engage in learning opportunities that develop solidarity and understanding.
