Welcome to Firs Primary School

I am incredibly proud to be the Head teacher at Firs. Our school is full of hardworking, enthusiastic and happy pupils and caring staff who are committed to improving the educational outcomes for our pupils. We are supported in doing this by our wider community of parents, carers and friends.


Firs Primary is lucky to have a very diverse community of children who learn, interact and play together very well. We use our ‘Firsy Five’ values to guide the way we learn and behave in school;

  • Fascinated
  • Independent
  • Respectful
  • Sociable
  • You can do it!

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you find it helpful. If you need any further information that you can’t find here, please contact the school office where Mrs Leslie and Mrs Pickering will be happy to help you, or if you would like to visit the school, please telephone to make an appointment.
