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 2019-2020 session here at Ancrum Road.
There were many highlights in session 2018-2019 including our very successful and motivating involvement in the Dundee Music Festival.. 
Our now very large whole school orchestra played in a showcase event on the stage of the magnificent Caird Hall. They had a great time and many parents and friends came along to suppport.
A number of our music groups and individuals also played in the evening concerts and we went along to be part of the audience which listened to and watched the fab instrumental teachers perform. 
This session we are to be continuing to grow music provision for our children with our new P5s having a class orchetsra opportunity with instructors from Dundee City Council, whilst almost all of our P6s and many P7s continue with thier music journeys.
Mrs Walker started working with groups in our kitchen to build their nutrition and cooking skills as well as support their social communication and overall health and well-being. We look forward soon to starting work with our families.
            Our Whole School Orchestra
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.

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.
