Welcome to our school.

Collydean Primary School was built in 1982 and is a co-educational, non-denominational school on the north side of Glenrothes. It has a roll of approx 380 pupils and a 130 place nursery.

The main school building is of an open plan design and houses 10 of the classes. There is a multi-purpose gym hall/dining hall, resource rooms, office accommodation with the remaining 5 classes in hutted accommodation. The purpose-built Nursery (which opened in 2000) is set within the grounds of the school. A controlled entry system operates on all external doors. There are extensive grounds of tarmac and grass which are used for outdoor play, outdoor PE and games.

Our aim is to create an ethos where pupils, parents and staff work together in partnership to provide the highest possible standard of education for all pupils. The school has an inclusive approach and is proactive in planning and evaluating its work.

The curriculum is enhanced by specialist teaching from our PE Teacher Mr Davis. 12 pupils from P4 to P7 are taught the violin and four P4 pupils are taught cello. Recorder is taught to children from P4 upwards.

There 1 full time and 1 part time Additional Support for Learning teachers and additional support for learning resources in place to enhance the education provision for all pupils.

Within the school staff at present there are 16 class teachers, 1 Principal Teacher, 2 Depute Headteachers and a Headteacher. The Nursery is staffed with a teacher and 9 Early Years Officers.

The school has a very active Parent Council which provides a range of social activities for families within the school and organises most of the fund-raising events.

Our Pupil Council, with members from Primary 1-7, is very active in encouraging discussion within the school to promote our motto of "Our School is for Everyone".

A residential programme at Ardroy Outdoor Centre is offered to pupils in P6 and  another to Meigle in P7 in liaison with Glenwood High School. Educational excursions are a regular feature of school life. There is an extensive range of after-school activities. A breakfast club runs from 8.15am to 8.45am.
