Welcome to the website for Kirkcaldy West Primary School, where we hope to provide you with an overview of the life and work of our school. 

Our school is over 100 years old and is a single storey, stone built, listed building. The school is situated within a built up, well established residential area of Kirkcaldy.

We enjoy a large and mixed catchment area and currently we have a pupil roll of around 596 pupils, inclusive of our 60/60 Nursery provision.

Mr Ewan Trousdale was appointed as Headteacher in August 2014.  The Senior Leadership Team (SLT) members are:

Nursery - Primary 7:  Mr Trousdale HT

Nursery - Primary 1:  Mrs Westwater DHT

Primary 2 - Primary 4/5:  Miss Lawless DHT

Primary 5 - Primary 7:  Mrs Rae DHT

We operate an open-door policy and are happy to meet with parents at anytime to discuss any matter in relation to their child's education.  We aim to be in the playground most mornings and after school and would welcome informal discussions with parents then also.  You can contact any member of the SLT through the HT email account on kirkcaldywestps.headteacher@fife.gov.uk .
