St. John’s Primary School was established in 1919 to serve the parishes of Rosyth and Inverkeithing and moved into the existing purpose-built building in 1988.

The school enjoys the benefits of modern facilities organised around 2 open plan teaching wings with 3 internal courtyards, which lend a pleasing and spacious aspect to the teaching areas. There is a large Gym and Dining Hall, which is well designed and excellently equipped to cater for all P.E, Drama and Assembly activities. Changing facilities with showers are adjacent to the main Hall.

The Community lounge is used to provide music, T.V and Circle Time activities. The new school library was opened this year and provides quality up-to -date reference and fiction reading materials.

The classrooms have excellent learning and teaching resources and the school is well equipped for ICT.

We create a positive learning ethos within a well-structured, stimulating, secure and welcoming environment, where pupils, staff and parents are valued and have a sense of pride in the school and where visitors are welcomed and links with the community promoted. We aim to ensure that each child develops intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and morally by providing a challenging and appropriate curriculum for our children, which will enable them to play an active role in society.

The Expressive Arts curriculum is enhanced by visiting teachers of Music, P.E, Drama and Art and further enriched by our active participation in all the Expressive Arts festivals and events.

In P.6 and P7 the children are given the opportunity to participate in a residential outdoor activity week. Our extensive extracurricular programme throughout the year includes, rugby, badminton, football, pop lacrosse, netball and athletics.

Our School Board, PTA and Pupil Council all actively work to enhance the daily life in St. John’s School.

Parents are welcome to visit the school and meet with a member of the management team.
