Gaelic medium education – where lessons are taught in Gaelic – is available to all children in Scotland, whether they can already speak Gaelic or not.

At Riverside Primary School, children are taught solely through Gaelic from P1 to P3. English literacy is introduced at the end of P3. From then onwards, literacy skills progress in both Gaelic and English.
