Milton of Balgonie Primary School
- Primary School
Milton of Balgonie’s original building was opened in 1823 with subsequent additions and extensions added in 1880, 1924 and 1962.
The school is situated off the bypass between Windygates and Glenrothes. The school's accommodation comprises one very large classroom where P1- P4 are taught and another classroom which accommodates P5 – P7. The original 1823 classroom now doubles as our hall and dining hall.
The school playground is all-tarmac. Unfortunately there are no grassy areas. A new extension has recently been built that consists of two offices, a Library, resources room, and a disabled toilet facility. The play area has recently been refurbished with the help of an Awards for All Grant. We now have a trim trail, a traversing wall, a wooden boat and a wooden shelter. The playground and school walls are decorated with colourful wall boards.
Our aim is to create an ethos whereby everyone feels valued and the children are given an enriching educational experience which provides the highest standard of education possible.
A Music Specialist visits the school once a week and we also have a specialist in Learning Support for one half day per week. The staff in the school comprises a Teaching Headteacher for P5 - P7 and a teacher in P1 – P4. We are supported by a Business Manager, a Clerical Assistant, 2 Pupil Support Assistants (1 permanent and 1 temporary).
We have an active Parent Council (Friends of Milton of Balgonie Primary School) and very supportive parents.
