Change to Class Structure

Due to an increase in the number of pupils at Innerwick Primary School, and an already full to capacity P4/7 class of 25, it has been necessary to alter the structure of the classes with effect from Monday 28th September 2009.

Instead of two composite classes of P1-3 & P4-7, the classes will be split as follows;-

P1/2 – Miss Farnworth & Mr MacRury

P3/4/5 – Ms Kavanagh & Mr MacRury

P6/7 – Miss Bell

Further details are available in the September issue of our school newsletter.

40th Anniversary of Innerwick Primary School

2009 is the 40th year of Innerwick Primary School being at it’s current site in Kirk Brae.

The schools will be celebrating with events througout the year – further details will be posted onto the website in due course

We will be having an open day where ex-pupils and their families will be invited to come into the school to look at how times have changed in school during the last 40 years.

We would also like to display school photos and artefacts from the previous 40 years, so we would ask that if anybody has any items that they are willing to lend to the school that they contact us via telephone on 01368 840227 or leave your comments on this website.

We hope to hear from as many people as possible!

Rag Bag Collection – October 2009

Following on from the success of our Rag Bag collection in April 2009, which raised £155.00 for the school, there will be a further collection from school on 6th October 2009.

So, if you have any types of unwanted textiles including adult’s and children’s clothes, paired shoes, hats, bags, belts, curtains, towels and bed linen, can you please arrange to hand them into school before 9.00am on 6th October 2009.  It is important that shoes are paired by tying the laces together, or with an elastic band.  Ragbag take all qualities of textiles, even ripped or with buttons missing!!! 

We hope that you are able to support this initiative and look forward to receiving items from you in due course.


At the end of the Summer Term 2009, we said fond farewells to our P7 pupils, other pupils moving on elsewhere and to Mrs Burbanks, who left us to become Head Teacher at West Barns Primary School.

At the start of the academic year 2009, we would like to welcome our new P1 pupils, Ms Caitriona Kavanagh who will be our Principal Teacher and also Miss Vicky Farnworth, a Newly Qualified Teacher, who will teach P1/2/3.

Next week, we look forward to seeing the new children who will be joining our Nursery class.
