PITTEUCHAR WEST Primary School was built in 1976. Recently a new nursery block was added to provide 70 places for 3-5 year olds.

The building has a secure entry system and is served by CCTV.

Classes are accommodated in 3 spacious open plan wings which are well resourced to meet all children’s learning needs. The large central Hall provides facilities for Gym, Drama, Assemblies, Presentations and Meals. The attractive grounds and local environment are well used to extend opportunities for learning.

Our aim is to provide the highest possible standard of education for all pupils so that each individual becomes a confident and independent learner capable of making valued contributions to society.

Partnership between teachers, parents, pupils and other adults is promoted to create an ethos of achievement and to celebrate success.

Class teachers are supported by visiting specialists in Drama, PE, Music and Art, a Music Instructor who teaches violin to pupils P4-7, a Support for Learning Teacher, 2 Classroom Assistants and 2 Support for Learning auxilliaries. Ancillary staff provide excellent clerical support, playground supervision, catering and cleaning services. A number of staff also provide extra curricular activities.

We have an active Pupil Council which meets regularly to discuss issues and concerns raised by pupils.

The School Board is active in fundraising and parents are regularly welcomed in school to work alongside staff in a number of complementary ways.
