Welcome to Capshard Primary School
Capshard Primary School opened in 1972. It is situated in the Dunnikier area of Kirkcaldy, a large estate of modern, private housing. The catchment area of the school has recently expanded to take in the new housing in Hollybrae, to the north of Chapel Level.
The building houses 13 classrooms, a Computer Suite and Library, built round a central quadrangle and garden. A large tarmac play area and extensive grass playing fields surround the school building.
In addition to the main building there are permanent huts which provide areas for Drama and Music.
The Nursery building has three large rooms and is situated in the school grounds. The Nursery accommodates both three and four year old children. The current capacity of the Nursery is for 60 places in each session.
Entrance to all the main areas of the school is controlled by a Security system.
The school has strong links with parents and the local community. There is an active Parent Forum with a fundraising group which organises social and fundraising events for children and their families.
Our aim is to challenge and encourage all our children to achieve their best and reach their full potential. We have regular events to celebrate and recognise success.
The Headteacher, Mrs Fairnie and Depute Headteachers Mrs Gavin and Ms Macinnes are happy to meet with parents to discuss any issue relating to the life of the school.
