About Ladeside Primary School

Ladeside Primary School is a non-denominational primary school, situated in a residential area and serves the communities of Larbert and Stenhousemuir.

The school is situated approximately 3 miles from Falkirk Town Centre and is within easy reach of the main road/rail routes serving Central Scotland.

The school building is traditional in design and dates from 1970. It is bright and well maintained, as are the grounds surrounding the school which provide extensive all-weather and grassy playing areas for the children. There are 14 classrooms in the school plus a Language Support Facility, Nursery accommodation, Dining Room, Assembly Hall with Stage Area, Library, Medical Room, ICT suite and other rooms. At present, including Nursery children, there are over 300 pupils at Ladeside Primary School.

As part of Falkirk Council's policy towards inclusion for pupils with Additional Support Needs, provision has been set up within Ladeside Primary School for children with ASD. Known locally as 'The Base' it is a multi roomed facility that support children from pre-school age through to Primary 7.

We also have the Office/Outreach facility for CLASP (Camelon and Larbert Support for Parents). This community based initiative is jointly funded by Falkirk Council and the Aberlour Child Care Trust.

The school also has four mobile classrooms, situated next to CLASP, which are currently home to the Primary 6 and Primary 7 classes at Ladeside.

After school, and during school holidays, First For Kids run an after school club for primary school aged children. This facility caters for children from the Larbert cluster area and the First For Kids is very popular and utilise most of the schools facilities.

There are many school clubs at Ladeside. These include Cross Country, TaeKwonDo, Knitting, Chess, Scripture Union, Choir and Olympic Sports.
