Welcome To Dalry Primary Website Page
The Primary School forms part of the main school building and is connected to the Secondary School by the Gym Hall. Primary pupils benefit from this unique link with the Secondary School.
The Primary Handbook provides additional information to help familiarise you with some of the educational, organisational and social aspects of the Primary School. We hope you find the information in the handbook useful.

Primary 7 Transition
To help pupils make the transition to Secondary School, most Thursday mornings, P7 pupils from the Cluster Primary’s, Dalry, Kells and Carsphairn, attend Dalry Secondary. They attend 3 periods from 9am until 12noon, and then have their lunch, before returning to their respective Primary Schools for the afternoon.
During the three periods on a Thursday morning the P7 pupils work on
- Modern Languages (French and Spanish)
- a rotation of subjects
- Sports/Health & Wellbeing
The rotational subjects will include Geography, Science, Social Subjects and Technology. The topics covered compliment work in the 3 primaries and build on the progression of skills needed as the children move into Secondary.

Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) is bringing learning to life in the way education is delivered for all 3-18 year olds – in Nursery, Primary, Secondary, at college, workplace or community learning. It takes a fresh approach to what, how, and where young people learn. It aims to raise standards, improve knowledge and develop skills, closing the gap between the lowest and highest performers. Ultimately it aims to nurture young people as successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.
At Dalry we give careful attention to the core curriculum as laid down in Curriculum for Excellence, which comprises of:
- Literacy & English
- Numeracy & Mathematics
- Social Studies
- Expressive Arts
- Religious & Moral Education
- Health & Wellbeing
