About our school

Welcome to Tayvallich Primary School!

We are a small friendly school, with lots going on.

Tayvallich Primary School is situated near the shore of Loch Sween on the Argyll coast of Scotland. At Tayvallich Primary School we pride ourselves on having a welcoming ethos and a strong partnership between staff, pupils and parents.

Our following values and aims were developed with the pupils, staff and parents:

We value honesty and trust and believe that we should show respect to all.

We aim to be good friends and do our best to help each other.

We enjoy our learning and know the importance of giving our best efforts to help us achieve.



Our building

The main school building houses classrooms for the P4-7 and P1-3 pupils, a small dining room, cloakroom, children and staff toilets and the school office.

Our purpose built Early Years building opened in August 2014, and comprises a spacious and bright classroom with direct access to its own lovely outdoor space.
