Welcome to Balmerino Primary School

Balmerino Primary School is situated in the rural village of Gauldry. A late Victorian building Balmerino Primary is enhanced with views across the River Tay and Carse of Gowrie. The school serves the villages of Gauldry, Balmerino and Rathillet catchment areas. The main school building houses two classrooms, a nursery class, a multi purpose dining hall, a Learning Support room, office and staff facilities. The playground houses an additional hut for pupils in P4-7 and contains two classrooms and a cloakroom.

Balmerino Primary school has excellent grounds including concrete play areas, a large grassy area with a trim trail, a quiet zone surrounded by a variety of shrubs and trees and numerous picnic tables. We are in the process of creating an outdoor classroom complete with a story chair and pupil benches.

At Balmerino Primary School we recognise that each child is an individual with individual needs. We seek to provide a caring, positive environment in which the self-esteem of each pupil is both acknowledged and nurtured.

We are an Inclusive, Health Promoting, Rights Respecting, Eco school in which pupils and staff aim to be:

  • Successful Learners
  • Effective Contributors
  • Responsible Citizens
  • Confident Individuals

At Balmerino Primary school we operate an open door policy where we work in partnership with parents and the local wider community. Balmerino Primary School has a very supportive and active Parent Council.
