Smithton Primary and ELC is in the Highland Council area.
Smithton is situated near Culloden on the eastern outskirts of Inverness. Smithton Primary School was opened in 1974, around the time that Smithton was becoming fully developed into a residential area. The school catchment area includes Smithton, Resaurie and Westhill. This year we are having a major upgrade to the building! Visit the blog regularly for updated photos for progress….
Our school building welcomes you through our main foyer and through the secured doors there are classrooms and learning spaces. Our large hall is used for PE lessons and assemblies, and it is also used as our canteen at lunchtimes for both ELC and the school.
Our Nursery is housed in a separate building that includes two large indoor learning areas and there is also a dedicated outdoor learning space.
Our playground comprises a large tarmac area, a small basketball court and an all weather MUGA. We have a variety of play equipment installed around the playground. We also have a small wooded area at the front of the school that is used for outdoor learning.
We currently have around 380 pupils in 14 classes from P1 – P7, and we have 80 pupils across flexible hours 8.30 – 4.00 but 30h funded hours for early years provision.
