About the school
Fallin Primary School's present building was officially opened in April 1967 but a school in the village has been traced back to at least the early 1820s. The first school in Fallin was for the children of farm labourers. At the start of the 1900s a coal mine opened and a larger school was needed. The village grew around the pit site. It is the only school in the village and serves the communities of Throsk and Fallin. The school had a major refurbishment in 2004.
The school grounds are extensive and consist of tarmac areas and expanses of grass as well as a separate garden. The grounds are continually being developed to enhance outdoor learning experiences.
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.
