Buckhaven Primary School, built in 1916, has a traditional exterior but houses an extensive array of up to date resources including a custom-built ICT suite.

The schools accommodation is bright with attractive displays of pupils work. There are 12 mainstream classes, 2 Learning Centres (previously known as the Additional Support Needs Department) and a well-resourced nursery. Good, imaginative use has been made of the school's playground to provide youngsters of all ages with positive play options.

We aim to provide a stimulating curriculum for all pupils. Every effort is made to meet pupils needs, including the inclusion of pupils with additional support needs. We provide support to local schools in the planning of individualised programmes.

Whilst striving to support pupils to reach their fullest potential in the core subjects, we attach great importance to developing the whole child, engaging and sustaining interest in a broad range of learning opportunities. We have firm links with our local community, including Buckhaven Library, CLEAR,  Buckhaven Parish Church, Buckhaven Community Centre, our Community Wardens and Buckhaven Theatre.

There is an excellent range of extra-curricular clubs including gardening, tennis, athletics, engineering, art and football. The school benefits from an active Parent Council and Parent Forum. Through the creation of  our Pupil Voice forum and our Eco Committee, pupils' views have an influence on decision making within the school.

We are fully committed to continuous improvement and are happy to discuss any aspect of the school with parents and other interested members of the community.
