Welcome to Abbots Cross Primary School and thank you for taking the time to get to know us.  With an enrolment of around 320 students in a 14-class structure, Abbots Cross Primary School is in a position to provide a high level of resources while at the same time pupils are known on a more personal level.

The happy, family-friendly nature of our school community is underpinned by an excellent pastoral programme. Staff members are trained to support children of all abilities: those children with special gifts and talents, those on the Autistic spectrum and those with specific learning needs such as dyslexia and dyspraxia. Our pupils are further supported by a fully qualified school counsellor and by participation in Hopeful Minds and Helping Hands programmes.

Pupils at Abbots Cross Primary School achieve outstanding results. In the academic year 2018-2019 98% of our P7 pupils achieved their predicted level in Numeracy while 91% achieved their predicted level in Literacy.
