The Leadership Team supporting the provision consists of the Head Teacher, 2 Depute Head Teachers and a Principal Teacher.

At Balbardie Primary School, we have high aspirations for all our pupils. We create an excellent learning environment of the highest quality where everyone is encouraged to Achieve, Believe and Celebrate. Our #BalbardieMAGIC values of Mindset, Acceptance, Generosity, Integrity and Community underpin everything we do. At Balbardie Primary the child’s voice is at the centre of our practice.

The school works very closely, in partnership, with parents/carers and the wider community. It has earned a good reputation within the community and is very well supported by an active and effective parent council.
