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 the start of session 2018-2019. It will be great to see all of our children back in school after the summer break and to welcome our new P1 children and their families, as well as a few others across the school, into our school community. 
Over the summer we have had work done to improve our learning environment - we have had a new family/pupil kitchen built and it is looking amazing! So looking forward to the opportunities this will give everyone. 
We have also started work on brightening up our stairwells with meaningful messages. An artist worked with some of our pupils to design two SHANARRI themed murals (based on Children's Rights - Safe, Healthy, Active, Nurtured, Achieving, Responsible, Respected and Included). As well as being bright and cheerful, we hope that by seeing these murals daily our children will learn what they are entitled to as they journey through life and follow the mindful grafitti messages created by some of our pupils with their parents last session.

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.
