About Fenwick Primary School
We hope you will find the information on the website helpful, informative and exciting and that it gives you a good insight into school life at Fenwick Primary.
Our rural school is located in the historic village of Fenwick with a school roll of 113. The village is famous for the Fenwick Weavers’ Society believed to be the first co-operative in the world. The school houses are named after famous people from the village and catchment area:
Fulton – John Fulton astronomer and mathematician who was born in Fenwick who designed the Orrery now on display in Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow.
Howie – John Howie was born near Fenwick in Lochgoin Farmhouse which provided refuge to the Covenanters.
Dunlop – The Dunlop family who were a very important Covenanting family from Fenwick.
Fowlds – Matthew Fowlds was the last hand loom weaver who died after his 100th birthday.
Our catchment area is a wide one geographically, taking in not only the village of Fenwick and hinterland, but Waterside and Moscow. We also have pupils here on placing request from neighbouring areas, particularly the area of Kilmarnock nearest to Fenwick.
School Ethos and Values
We endeavour to support all pupils to be the best they can be and positive relationships are at the heart of everything we do. We operate an open doors policy and welcome feedback from all our stakeholders. The school and Parent Council work collaboratively to drive improvements for our pupils.
Pupils are given the opportunity to lead change and improvements through our committees. Every child in the school is a member of one of the following committees: Pupil Council, Eco, Heath and Wellbeing, Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSO) and Rights Respecting Schools (RRS). The committees meet regularly and pupils take on the roles of chairperson and secretaries. See our committee pages for updates.
Our children, staff, parents and partners work together to promote a culture of mutual respect and lifelong learning where children are happy, motivated and have high self-esteem and confidence to enable them to realise their full potential.
