The current Edinburgh Primary School site opened in April 2011 after moving from the Victorian building that previously housed the school. Edinburgh continues its exciting journey from a one form entry to a three form entry school- pupils and staff continue rise to the challenges and changes that this brings with an increasing pupil roll and growing staff team.
How we've changed...

Vision and Ethos
At Edinburgh Primary, we want children to be happy, determined and successful. We strive to develop confident, young people who want to learn and achieve their best but also have an interest and shared understanding of the world around them.
At the heart of our school, is a dedicated team of staff who are committed to providing the pupils with a high quality education that interests and inspires the children as well as fostering a caring, nuturing environment.
For all children to develop socially, emotionally and intellectually enabling them to become successful, lifelong learners.
1. To provide a secure and happy learning environment in which everyone shows respect for themselves and for others.
2. To encourage all children to work to their potential enabling them to become learners who are
• Literate, numerate and technologically confident
• Independent, critical thinkers
• Confident and persistent
• Creative and imaginative
• Resilient, ambitious and aspirational
3. To support the development of social and communication skills to allow children to become secure, positive members of the community.
4. To promote equality and a positive attitude towards the social, cultural and religious diversity within the school and community both local and global.
Edinburgh Primary continues to commit to developing and supporting the 'whole child'. A wide range of extra curricular activities are offered to provide parents, carers and pupils with further opportunities to gain new skills, interests and knowledge.
