The Building

Our school serves the village of Sprouston and surrounding rural areas. The school was built in 1966 and has one main open plan classroom with adjoining work spaces and activity areas, a second classroom which is used for music lessons and other group activities and a hall.  There is an extensive outdoor area for play, P.E and gardening. The outdoor area has been developed and the children really benefit from outdoor explorative learning and exploring.

We currently have one ‘Sprouston’ house that all pupils collect points for.  We have a reward chart with goals at certain points for different rewards, such as a pajama day, baking and a trip to the local park.

We actively encourage the wearing of school uniform at Sprouston Primary. Apart from being practical and comfortable it gives a sense of pride and community within the school and when out and about on trips etc. The school uniform is a navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan with the school logo. Pupils are asked to wear a white polo shirt and grey, black or navy trousers/shorts or skirts. In the summer months girls may choose to wear a blue and white gingham dress. Sweatshirts, cardigans, jackets, fleeces and polo shirts may be ordered throughout the year. Please order online at Border Embroideries. Orders can be delivered to the school free of charge or to a home address for a fee. All items of clothing and other belongings should have the child’s name clearly marked. We discourage pupils from wearing certain items of fashion clothing, jeans, football shirts and unsuitable footwear. For safety reasons pupils should not wear high heels, bulky rings or bracelets or earrings other than studs. Jewellery should not be worn during P.E lessons Clothing and footwear grants are available through welfare benefits – see Scottish Borders Council website or ask at the school office for further information.
