Crossgates Primary School, Nursery Class and Speech and Language Class is situated in a former mining village with a mixed catchment of private and local authority housing in central Fife. The school roll is currently stable at approximately 210 in our mainstream classes which are currently organised into 8 classes. We have moved to a 30/20 nursery this session and have maximum capacity to support 10 Speech and Language Class pupils from other local schools.

The current leadership team includes the Headteacher and one Deputy Headteacher, there are ten  class teachers, one 0.5 Nursery teacher, one 0.7 Support for Learning teacher, three Early Years Officers and seven Pupil Support Staff working with groups and individuals with identified needs.                    

At Crossgates we offer a consistent and positive learning and teaching environment where your child will feel secure and happy and engaged in their learning. This website intends to give you a range of  information about our school and the service we provide for our families.

Every aspect in the life of our school is based on our six shared school values. They are Respect, Responsibility, Fulfilling Potential, Honesty, Teamwork and Kindness. These shared values underpin the ethos of our school and are evidenced in everything we say and everything we do here at Crossgates PS.

We work closely as a staff team and with our colleagues in Beath cluster to develop our learning and teaching strategies across our continually developing curriculum.  We have very high expectations of ourselves and the children and constantly  strive for excellence in each and every classroom in our school.

We value the "pupil voice" greatly and ensure that children have regular opportunities to make decisions about the life and work of the school through a number of school committees.

Parents and carers are always welcome in our school as we firmly believe that it is through this meaningful partnership with our families that we can help to fully support our pupils and encourage them to achieve their potential. School  newsletters, text messages and updates on this website will keep you informed regarding the school's activities and future events.

We have a strong tradition of parental & community involvement in Crossgates which has enabled us to make progress in all areas of development and will help in future years to come. We have a very active Parent Council and PTA who meet regularly and organise a number of events to support the school.
