Dysart Primary School was built in 1915. It has a nursery which caters for 3 and 4 year olds, mainstream and a centre which helps support children from the Kirkcaldy area district who have social and emotional difficulties. The school has 6 classes, a large games/assembly hall, dining area, resource rooms and a superb I.C.T. suite which children use from nursery age. There is a large play area for the children. There are 11 teachers, 2 early years officers, 2 classroom assistants and 1 part-time Learning Support teachers. We have visiting teachers in all of the expressive arts and offer tuition in violin and trombone. We have a school uniform which we believe promotes a sense of belonging and ownership.

Strong partnership between pupils, parents and staff is the main focus of our school ethos. We encourage all children to do their best and set high standards both in relation to attainment and behaviour. Pupils, parents and staff are actively involved in our school – we have a pupil council, a parents group and staff who work hard to ensure each child reaches his/her potential.

Our school plays a vital part within the community. We have very strong links with the church; community groups, Dysart Regeneration Group and Dysart Trust, and believe that our school plays a vital part within the community.

P7 children attend a residential programme. We offer many extra-curricular activites and have an excellent football team open to both boys and girls. We have an out of school club running in the morning and after school including the holidays offering child care facilities to parents. We also have a breakfast club. We offer fresh fruit/juice and yoghurts at break as part of our healthy eating initiative.

Visitors to the school comment that we have a very approachable staff, and children who are 'happy', 'confident' and 'keen to learn'.

We would be delighted to meet with any interested parents who would like to visit our school.
