DESCRIPTION OF THE SCHOOL
St Margaret’s RC Primary School is situated in the village of Cowie, some five miles to the east of Stirling. In August 2016, we moved in to a new building located in 'Berryhills' part of Cowie.
The school provides denominational primary education for children of parents living in Cowie and the neighbouring villages of Fallin, Plean and Throsk. These are local communities which have their history in the mining industry and as a result have experienced major economic upheaval since the early eighties. It is, however, a community that is beginning a process of regeneration, with significant new private housing growth in the area.
As a school we continue to foster strong links with Cowie Primary School, Cowie Nursery and the local community. We continue to work closely within the St Modan’s High School Cluster in order to meet the challenges and expectations presented by our children and their community.
At present, we have 6 classes (P1, P2, P3, P4/5, P5/6 and P6/7). The staffing complement is a Headteacher, Principal Teacher, 7 Classroom Teachers and 1 Support for Learning Teacher (2 days a week). Ancillary staff includes an Administrative Support Assistant and 5 Support for Learning Assistants.
