Recent improvements have been made, including a Nursery extension and upgrading of facilities. For the past few years the average has been 8 classes plus a nursery class. The school caters for children from 3 to 12 years. There are currently 205 children in P1 to P7 and 60 children in our nursery. Almost all our children experience their pre school year in our nursery class. Our catchment secondary school is Preston Lodge High School and most of our children transfer there.

The school staffing consists of a Head Teacher, Depute Head Teacher with 0.6 class commitment, PT with 0.9 class commitment, 7 CTs, specialists in music and PE. At present there is an active Parent Council. The school has enthusiastic children, supportive parents, committed support staff and dedicated teachers - a fantastic. combination.
