Welcome to Towie Primary School

Towie School is situated amongst the rolling hills of Donside, some 13 miles from Alford, the nearest large centre of population. The School’s catchment extends for a radius of approximately 10 miles, serving the population of outlying glens as well as the hamlet of Glenkindie. There has been a school on the present site for about 130 years. Until the 1960s, Towie School was a junior secondary. Currently the school has three classrooms and a self-contained Nursery, along with a separate dining room, kitchen and our own cook.

Towie School provides education for children aged 3–12, with classes from ante-pre school nursery to Primary 7.

Towie Primary School has one full time and two part-time class teachers along with a full time headteacher who is class committed for half of the week. The teachers are supported in the classroom by a Pupil Support Assistant and there is a Support For Learners teacher who attends half a day per week. The school also works closely with a range of other support agencies in order to provide the best possible experience for children with additional support needs. The Nursery is administered by an Early Years Senior Practitioner and staffed by an Early Years Lead Practitioner and two Early Years Practitioners. The Nursery operates full days, following the school term dates, allowing for 1140 hours of provision.

Our Active Schools Coordinator provides a range of additional active and sporting opportunities for the children.

The teaching staff are supported by a School Administrator, a Clerical assistant, a Pupil Support Assistant, a School Cook, a Cleaner and a part time Janitor.

On leaving Towie Primary School, most pupils transfer to Alford Academy. Towie School is part of the Alford Community Schools’ Network and works closely with the other schools in the Network.

Community links are a valued part of school life. The school has a very supportive Parent Council who support school improvement activities and raise additional funds to provide many extras for the pupils in the school.

Devolved budgets are managed in accordance with authority guidelines in order to support planned improvements in the school.
