Welcome to Ancrum Road Primary School

Welcome to our school web site.  We hope that you enjoy finding out about our school community by navigating your way around.
We are looking forward to having a very busy and happy term 2 of session 2018-2019 here at Ancrum Road.
There were many highlights in term 1 including our annual visit to Dalguise with  P7s. Great fun was had by all, many new skills were learned and fears conquered. We also believe that during this visit, stronger friendships were built amongst our children and that it gave staff and children the opportunity to really get to know one another and to build solid foundations upon which trusting and supportive relationships can be developed throughout the session to improve learning outcomes for all.
Another highlight of term 1 was the opening of our Kitchen/Family room and having our learners use this fantastic space for the first time. Two of Ancrum's previous head teachers; Mrs Catto and Mrs Duff very kindly came along to support us with this venture and to 'cut the ribbon' to officially open this new facility. We combined the opening with Macmillan Coffee events and were overwhelmed by the genrosity of our community. So many folk baked and donated cakes, came along and enjoyed a cuppa to help raise money for this fantastic charity. Almost £500 was raised.
We are really looking forward this term to everyone being able to use the kitchen/family room to learn new life skills. We are planning to invite parents/carers/grandparents and the local community to learn with us and lead the learning in a number of Health and Well being inititaives in the kitchen/family room. There will updates throughout the term on our Twitter account.
Our Kitchen/Family Room
Ancrum Road Primary School first opened in 1876.  We are proud of our school and its history and we are also proud to be working together as a community to build memories for the future. We strive to create a secure and happy atmosphere in our school and welcome visitors warmly.

Please see link below which was sent by Ancrum Parent Partnership. Money can be raised for their funds and ultimately our children by signing up for this initiative. Thanks in advance if you can help. - Mrs McQuillan


Parent Pay Information

Payments to Schools

The school currently accepts payments online, using a secure website called ParentPay, for items such as school meals (primary schools only), trips and uniforms. The ParentPay system is easy to use and offers parents the freedom to make payments by debit or credit card, whenever they like, ensuring that monies reach schools safely and securely.


The system helps to remove the costs associated with having to manage cash securely on school premises and it frees up time to better support the smooth running of the school. We will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments as necessary but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility. The more parents use the service, the greater the benefit to the school, the parents and the pupils alike.


If you already have a ParentPay account you don't have to do anything.

If you haven't yet activated your ParentPay Account, please contact the school office who will reprint your activation letter to enable you to set up your ParentPay account ready for the start of the new term.
