The Positive Ethos of the School is the foundation on which we build Learning and Teaching. Learners are successful, confident, exercise responsibility and contribute to the life of the school and wider community. At Fishermoss School all pupils are known as ‘Global Warriors’. Being a Global Warrior is about knowing and understanding our world and having the right values, knowledge and skills to make the world a better place. It is about positive relationships and building safe, happy and healthy communities. The school has an inclusive approach and we welcome and celebrate diversity encouraging all pupils and staff to take leadership roles across a range of activities including Global Warriors, Pupil Council, Playground rota, Play Leaders. This all contributes to progressing pupil skills as effective contributors and responsible citizens and supports develop skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work.
Fishermoss is an Eco School – We are part of the Eco-schools programme – an international initiative designed to encourage whole school action for the environment. We have been awarded five green flags – the green flag is the top level of award in the programme. It is a recognised award scheme that accredits schools who make a commitment to continuously improve their environmental performance.
We are recognised as a Cycle Friendly School and we have been awarded Fair Trade status and the Anne Frank Award.
The Rag Bag Scheme
The ‘Rag Bag’ recycling scheme has been developed to provide regular fundraising for schools and nurseries in Scotland.
The scheme increases awareness about textile recycling and by increasing recycling rates we can help the environment by ensuring less material goes to landfill.
Our ‘Rag Bag’ container is situated in the staff car park. Thank you for your support.
