Falkland Primary School was built in 1967. It is the only primary school in Falkland and also serves the village of Newton of Falkland and the surrounding area.

The main school building houses 4 classrooms, library and general purpose room, assembly hall, dining area and office accommodation. Hutted accommodation in the school grounds houses the Nursery class, Primary 1 and Primary 2. There is a tarmac playground and the school benefits from having access to a large playing field which extends the play area in good weather.

Our aim is to offer pupils a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment where each individual is encouraged to fulfil his or her potential and success is recognised in all aspects of school life.

We are committed to offering a wide curriculum to all pupils and make good use of visits, visitors and the local environment to support learning. Our Learning Support teacher is in school 2 days each week.

Our Parent Council supports the school well and organises many successful fundraising and social events throughout the school session. The Pupil Council meets regularly to discuss concerns and issues raised by the pupils.

Primary 7 pupils have the opportunity to take part in a residential outdoor activity programme at Ardeonaig in Perthshire.

An Out of School Club is available in school. Parents are able to pay for out of school care both before and after the school day.

We are always happy to meet with parents who wish to discuss any aspects of our school.
