Kinnaird Primary School is a non-denominational school that was established on 21 August 2007 to serve the fast-growing housing developments and new community currently under construction in the north Larbert area.
Having initially begun life in temporary accommodation in the grounds of Stenhousemuir Primary School, the school community was delighted to move into their new school building on 9 January 2008. The school was designed to be a landmark building at the heart of this brand new community and fulfils this purpose extremely well.
The school was built at a cost of £9.3 million and has a capacity for 434 children. Two purpose-built wings attached to the main building house a 40/40 nursery class and an additional support for learning (ASL) facility.
The 14 classrooms in the two-story teaching block open onto a bright and airy glass-roofed central atrium. The school also benefits from a range of additional accommodation, including a large library, IT suite, community room, parents' room, sports hall with changing facilities, dining hall and kitchen.
The landscaped grounds, which are protected by C.C.T.V. cameras, are extensive with hard and grassed play areas. Several play areas also include the provision of brightly coloured safety surface. Mature trees have been planted around the building and complement existing woodland areas. A large marble 'sundial' provides an area that can be used as an outdoor classroom while the roof garden provides a more intimate learning environment.
A large all-weather floodlit sports pitch enhances opportunities for sporting activity and healthy living and the school grounds are well equipped with storage areas for bicycles.
The building has been designed to ensure that it meets the needs of the disabled and features automatic doors, ramped access, disabled toilets and a lift.
The entire building is protected by a security system.
Children, families and all interested visitors are welcome into our school, where we will endeavour to make every child's education as happy and fulfilling as possible. A close liaison between parents, staff, school and the community is actively encouraged. Everyone is invited to make as full a contribution as possible and to the work of the school so that high standards are expected and achieved.
At Kinnaird Primary we 'Learn to live. Live to learn'.
