We would wish to encourage any parent wishing to devote time to any extra curricular activity for our pupils.
The scope of these can extend from sporting activities such as
- badminton or
- cross country to chess,
- art clubs,
- young scientist clubs – anything at all!
If you feel you can help (expertise isn’t called for, just enthusiasm), please complete the attached slip.
We have provision in the school for children with Additional Support Needs. A child may require additional support for a variety of reasons. These may include those who are being bullied, are particularly gifted, have experienced a bereavement, or are not attending school regularly, as well as those who have behavioural or learning difficulties, mental health problems, or specific disabilities such as deafness or blindness.
We have a full-time A.S.N. teacher and 2 auxiliaries who can work with the child in their mainstream class, on a one-to-one basis or with a small group of their peers. We also have a part-time teacher who works specifically with children who have a difficulty with language.
In the new school there will be room for children in purpose built accommodation at the front of the building.

Kintore Primary School is a vital part of the community of Kintore in Aberdeenshire. There is evidence of a school in Kintore from as long ago as 1574. For many years the school operated out of the townhouse, where there was a designated schoolroom and schoolhouse. Later the Parish School was moved to buildings adjacent to the Kintore Arms, on the site locally known as Still's Buildings. By June 1875 the two lower classes were being taught in Kintore's Public Hall and by September the evidence is that the school was occupying the present site. By 1892 the Inspectors recommended immediate attention to correct the problems of accommodation as the roll was now at over 300. By March 1908 all the rooms in the remodelled school were occupied and on August 24th 1908 the New School Buildings were formally opened. The extension was added in 1959 and formally opened in June 1960. After 1981 the school was no longer a combined primary and junior secondary as the Academy was then opened in Kemnay. By 2002 Aberdeenshire's bid for the second Public Private Partnership was successful and planning for the new school could begin. In July 2004 Robertsons began to lay the foundations of the new community school. The new school was opened in February 2006 with facilities for the whole community, including a library, playgroup and community use rooms. The school was inspected by H.M.I. in February 2003 and a copy of the report, that was published in June 2003, can be viewed on the H.M.I. website, www.hmie.gov.uk

All parents are members of the P.T.A., although a committee is elected to organise and coordinate events and activities. At present the parent representatives are:-
Jacqui Scott (Chair), Peter Marks (Vice Chair), Jane Hannick and Julie Neish (Treasurers), Debbie Sharp (Secretary)
