Welcome to Abernethy Primary School

Welcome to our School's website where you will find information about our Primary & Nursery School

About Our School

On behalf of everyone at Abernethy PS, I would like to extend a warm welcome.

In Abernethy, we recognise that every child is unique with a variety of abilities and needs.  We strive to recognise and fulfil these needs, in order for all children to reach their full potential.
We are a Sports Gold Award for the second time and Eco School with Green flag status.  We promote each childs sense of responsibility and respect for themselves, others, their community and the world they live in.

We in Abernethy Primary are one of 11 Primary Feeder schools for Perth High School.

At Abernethy we value the importance of good relationships between home and school and seek to work closely with you throughout your child’s school career. Parents are always very welcome to come and meet the Class Teacher, Principal Teacher and/or the Head Teacher to discuss their child’s education and wellbeing.

Community support - Dog mess

Good evening,
I am writing to ask for everyones support, as we have unfortunately been informed off dog mess being left outside the school, in an area where children gather while entering and leaving their school day. We of course are not aware if this mess was left during the school day or not, however speaking as a dog lover, I would be grateful if everyone would join me in encouraging sensible dog waste removal. 
Many thanks, 
Ms McKenzie


Children In Need Day - Friday 19th November

As 'Children In Need' is happening on a day that we are in school this year, we would love to show our support to this wonderful charity by holding a 'Dressing GOWN Friday' in School & Nursery. 
If your child would like to show their support and join in some cosy fun, we ask that they wear their dressing gown or onsie, over their school uniform on Friday 19th Nov. We ask for a donation of £1 towards Children In Need, which can be payable on Parent Pay. 
We thank everyone in advance for their support.
Regards, Ms McKenzie
