Muckhart Primary is a small rural school with a current roll of 43. The school was built in 1845 and is situated at the centre of the parish; this explains why the school is not in the centre of the village. Over the years the school has been modernised and new bits added on. We have extensive outdoor areas which are regularly used for teaching. We have strong community links and use the village and surrounding areas regularly to develop learning.
We have 3 classes -P1/2 The Thistle Class, P3/4 The Wild Cat Class and P5-7 The Scots Pine Class. We have 2 permanent teachers and a probationer teacher. We have 2 Learning Assistants as well as an Administrator. Children receive 1 hour art teaching per week and 2 hours PE taught by a specialist teacher.
We are very well supported by parents and other community volunteers. Our library is organised by a group of parents on a Tuesday and our garden is maintained, along with the children, by 2 parents on a Friday. Three other helpers from the community come in at key times during the week to support learning.
We work hard to make our school friendly and welcoming to all. We value differences and work together to live by our values of respect, responsibility and honesty.
One big happy family!
