About the school
The modern purpose built school was opened in August 1996 and provides attractive, bright and pleasant accommodation for around 440 primary and nursery age children. The school has a very welcoming nursery, 15 modern classrooms, open areas for P1-2, P3-4, P4-5 and P6-7, a large reference library and music room, a fully equipped gym and production kitchen, a dining hall, an extensive asphalt play area and a large fenced playing field.
Both the nursery and school enjoy their own gardens where we plant for wildlife, butterflies and bumblebees. Children have opportunities to grow and tend fruit and vegetables in our gardens.
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.
