About Ellon Primary
Our school is situated in the town of Ellon, which is an attractive rural location fifteen miles north of Aberdeen.
The school was built in 1962 in the traditional individual classroom style.
Ellon Primary School provides education for children aged 3 – 12 i.e. from ante-preschool nursery – P7.
We have thirteen full time teaching staff and two full time staff providing Enhanced Provision for the cluster. In the nursery we have an early years lead practitioner and five early years practitioners. The Head Teacher is non-class committed and we two full time depute posts.
We have visiting specialist teachers who give specialist input for ICT, Music, Physical Education and Modern Languages.
As well as providing Enhanced Provision for the cluster we are also a Community Resource Hub for the area. We have one full time support for learning post which provides support for children when needed.The school also works closely with a range of other support agencies and volunteers in order to provide the best possible experience for children with additional support needs.
We have closed classrooms as well as an ICT room and a school hall which doubles as the gym and canteen.The school playground has recently been up-graded to provide a stimulating outdoor learning and play space for the children. The garden also provides a much valued, safe and peaceful outdoor learning environment.
We have the added advantage of having Gordon Park within close proximity, which we use for sports and outdoor learning.
The school has wireless internet and the children have access to laptops and mobile devices.
The children participate in a wide variety of curricular and non-curricular activities within the school grounds and also in their local environment and community. We run an after-school Netball Club, a Football Club, Badminton, Running and Coding Groups.
