The school is a modern flat-roofed building on three levels. There are 14 classrooms, a central hall with adjoining dining area, several offices, medical suite, parents' room, general-purpose area and resource library.

At Chapelside we believe that if the links between home and school are strong then this will have a positive effect on the child's attitude and performance at school. We have works closely with our Parents, Pupils and Community to establish our shared Vision and Values for our school.

Our Vision

"At Chapelside Primary we aim, in partnership with parents, the wider community and other services, to provide a safe and caring environment within which each child is enabled to achieve his/her potential."

Our Values

  • We will follow instructions immediately.
  • We will be respectful to others at all times.
  • We shall not hurt each other.
  • We shall try our best at all times.
  • We shall keep safe at all times.
  • We endeavour to provide experiences for our pupils to be Responsible Citizens, Successful Learners, Confident Individuals and Effective Contributors.

Our pupils have many additional responsibilities within the school and have many opportunities to have their ideas and opinions heard through being House Captains, members of various committees, assemblies, Peer Mediators and Buddies.

We provide a variety of extra - curricular activities throughout the year e.g Netball, Dance, Arts and Crafts, Choir. We participate in many sporting festivals throughout the year and our Primary 6 pupils are trained as Junior Sports Leaders.

We communicate regularly and in a variety of ways with parents. There are twice yearly parent / child consultations which aim to give detailed information on your child's progress. A variety of workshops designed to give parents more information about the curriculum and how they can assist their child's education, are organised at different times throughout the year. We hold Parents' Showcase afternoons which gives parents the opportunity to visit classrooms. We issue monthly newsletters, Keeping You Posted leaflets as well as using Twitter to showcase our events. We are very fortunate to be supported by a very active Parent Council.

The school aims to be an integral part of the local community. We use local amenities and use every opportunity to involve members of the community in our school events. We lay great emphasis on encouraging our pupils to contribute to their community and to assist in working towards making it a better place e.g donations to Airdrie Food bank, Choir singing at St. Andrew's Gardens, visits to library.

In keeping with authority policy our accommodation is available, out with school hours, for use by members of the community. In conjunction with our colleagues from Community Education, various short courses are available at certain times within the school during the school day.

Pupils normally transfer from primary to secondary between the ages of 11.5 and 12.5 so that they will have the opportunity to complete at least four years of secondary education. Pupils from Chapelside primary normally transfer to Airdrie Academy, South Commonhead Avenue, Airdrie.
