 LETHAM Primary School is situated at the highest point in LETHAM on the western fringe of Perth to the south of the main Perth / Crieff Road.  Our school serves an area of local authority houses built in the late 1950s and early 1960s, some of which are now owner occupied.  The school itself was built in 1964.  In recent years, a development of new private housing has been added to our catchment area.  We have two areas of playground space for the children to play in and these are enhanced by small garden areas and a young woodland area.  To the front of our school we have a beautiful sunken garden, used in good weather by trusted older pupils; to the west we have developed an area that was waste ground and is now The Peace Garden.

 LETHAM has a nursery class, eleven primary classes and a nurture group known as The Cherry Tree Room.  We also have a gym hall, assembly hall, dining room, an excellent Learning Resource Centre, an Expressive Arts Room, a Learning Support Base and a two smaller pupil support rooms. 

 Our aim is that all the children who come to LETHAM Primary will feel safe and happy in school and know that their opinions, ideas, and efforts are valued.  Our core business is Learning – and we seek to provide enjoyable, creative, relevant, challenging learning activities for our pupils.  We seek to ensure that every child works to the best of his/her ability, is polite and caring towards others and feels good about him/herself.  But beyond that, we want our pupils to have ambition, to believe in themselves, to aspire to be the best they can be.

 Parents are always very welcome to come and meet the Head Teacher or Depute Head to discuss their child’s education and wellbeing.  Phone or text to make an appointment, or drop in to check on what time is best.

 The school has a written Annual Report for last session; this is available on our website.

 We in LETHAM are part of the North Perth Integrated Community School initiative and as a result have access to an inter-agency team of staff including a Community Link Worker.  For further information on the full range of Integrated Community School activities please contact the Community School base on 01738 632841.
