Ladywell Primary is a non-denominational, co-educational school, situated in North Motherwell. The building has a planning capacity for 334 children. The main building was completed in August 1995 and is open plan. This means that there are no ‘classrooms’ as such, but bases and areas. Parents should note that the working capacity of the school will vary dependent upon the number of pupils at each stage and the way in which the classes are organised. The present school roll is 386 and is made up of 14 classes. The majority of teaching takes place, around the periphery of our enclosed gym hall. We also have an extension, built in November 2008, which is equipped for P1 and P2 pupils and two additional upper school classrooms located in our temporary huts.
Our associated secondary schools are Braidhurst High School and Dalziel High School.
The school encourages community involvement, in which pupils participate and from which they gain a wider view of the needs and aspirations of the community of Motherwell and beyond. Pupils are taught to respect their environment and to appreciate the work of those members of staff who have responsibility for cleaning and maintaining the buildings.
Staff development and training have a high priority in planning. Staff participation in in-service and continuous staff development ensures that teachers are provided with opportunities to enhance the provision which is made for pupils.
A caring school
Ladywell Primary School cares. We care about our school, our building and grounds and our community around us. High standards are set and maintained and every child is given an equal opportunity for learning. Staff and pupils work together providing your child with a wide variety of skills, positive attitudes and equal opportunities that will extend their experience to the world of work beyond the classroom.
We are very aware of the responsibility of educating your child(ren) to their full potential, not only intellectually, but also socially and morally.
