Channelkirk Primary School is a non-denominational primary school catering for children aged 3 to 12. There are three primary classes and a nursery which runs in the morning.
We are the pupils of Channelkirk Primary School.
Channelkirk Primary School
Currently at Channelkirk we have a nursery class for 3 and 4 year old children which runs five mornings per week. An infant class which has 22 children in P1,P2 and P3. A junior class which has twenty one, P4 and 5 children and a senior class of 15 children in P6 and.
The main building consists of two Classrooms, a Head Teachers Office, a Hall, a Library/Resources Area, a Staff Room, Kitchen, Toilets and Store Cupboard. The infant and senior class are situated in the main building. The nursery and junior classroom is located in a building next to the school.
There is a large playing area surrounding the school. There is a tarred path surrounding the school and a large flat area for playing ball games. A proportion of the playing area is grassed this contains trees, bushes and flowers which the children have planted. The children also have access to large playing fields within the village for sporting activities.
History of Channelkirk Primary School
There were other schools in the area until 1855 when a new school was built on the site we now occupy. That school consisted of one room until 1874 when another room was added. That building was basically sound but by the early 1970's space became difficult and two prefabricated classrooms were added to the site. Construction work began in November 1991 to extend and refurbish the original 19th century building. In 1992'93 the new school was completed, fitted out and ready for the staff and children to move into.
