About the school

Callander Primary includes a nursery class offering extended day, morning or afternoon places and places for eligible two year olds, a mainstream school covering stages P1 to P7 and an Autistic Spectrum Disorder Provision.
Outdoor facilities include a large tarmac playground and a playing field; this includes a bicycle shed because we encourage walking and cycling to school. There is wooden play equipment permanently in place. We have a school garden which is maintained by our eco group and gardening group and which isused to promote outdoor learning. We are always striving to improve our indoor and outdoor learning spaces.
Education Scotland has responsibility for evaluating the quality of pre-school education, all schools, teacher education, community learning and development, further education and local authorities. They also publish reports about services for children and evaluate child protection services.
Each school has it own geographic area called a catchment area. Normally, your child will attend your local catchment school. If you wish your child to attend a school other than the catchment school you are required to make a placing request.
