About the school
Strathyre Primary is a small rural school set in beautiful environs. It was built in 1960 to replace a very old building, which was the original school. A standing stone, which is believed to be a lintel or corner stone, sits in the playground and is the only remaining evidence of the old school. There is also a painting of the school by Watson Wood, a famous local artist, which hangs in the office. The new school was built to a very modern design and is a charming building in keeping with its surroundings.
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.
