Capshard Primary School Image 1

Capshard Primary opened in 1972.  It is situated in the Dunnikier area of Kirkcaldy, a large estate of modern, private housing.

The building houses 11 classrooms, a Computer Suite and Library, built round a central quadrangle and garden.  A large tarmac play area and extensive 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 has three large rooms and is situated in the school playground. The Nursery accommodates both three and four year old children.

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 and Depute Headteacher are happy to meet with parents to discuss any issue relating to the life of the school.
