Welcome to our school.

Collydean Primary School was built in 1981 and is a non-denominational school on the north side of Glenrothes. It has a roll of approx 400 pupils and a 130 place nursery.

The main school building is of an open plan design and houses up to thirteen classes. There is a multi-purpose gym hall/dining hall, resource rooms, office accommodation, with remaining 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. We are an inclusive school, with high standards in all we do: learning and behaviour.

We are an Eco school, proudly displaying our Green Flag.

We are a Rights Respecting School: Respect is a key word at our school - respect for oneself, each other and the environment.

We are a Health Promoting School: valuing our physical and mental wellbeing.

The curriculum is enhanced by specialist teaching from our PE Teacher Mr Davis. Some pupils from P4 to P7 are given the opportunity for tuition in violin cello. Recorder is taught to children from P4 upwards.

We have two Additional Support for Learning teachers, one fulltime and one part time, and additional support for learning resources in place to enhance the education provision for all pupils.

Within the school staff at present there are fifteen class teachers, three Depute Headteachers and a Headteacher. The Nursery is staffed with a teacher and nine 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 many fund-raising events.

Our Pupil Council, with members from Primary 1-7, is very active in encouraging discussion across the school, given all pupils are clear voice.

A residential programme to Ardroy Outdoor Centre in Argyll is offered to pupils in P6 and  another to Dalguise in Perth in P7 which is in liaison with all Cluster primary schools and Glenwood High School. Educational excursions are a regular feature of school life. We also have an extensive range of after-school activities and some lunchtime clubs: Dance, football, athletics, Rubiks Cube, chess and signing to name a few. A breakfast club runs from 8.15am to 8.45am in the school hall.

We are pleased to meet with parents to discuss any aspect of our school.
