We provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment in which we aim for all pupils to achieve their full potential and to have the confidence and skills to meet the challenges of the future.
The key Roseburn values of respect, responsibility, kindness, ambition and perseverance are recognised and promoted by all members of the school community.

We very much look forward to welcoming you and your child to Roseburn. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact the administrator in the school office.
Pudsey Visits Roseburn
Art Exhibition Visitors
Our 2016 Art Exhibition got off to a great start this week with visits from all the classes in school and some of the clubs that take place in Murrayfield Church. Lorna Macdonald, Principal Officer for Creative Arts and Learning with City of Edinburgh Council, also visited the exhibition and was very impressed with the quality and diversity of pupil work.
The pupils loved the exhibition! Those with work displayed this year were delighted to see their artwork framed and on sale! All of the pupils enjoyed the experience of viewing an exhibition and provided critical reviews of the work. P7 loved helping their buddies in P1 express their opinions in writing.
" I like the bumpy waves and the blue and green colours of 'Open 'Ocean' by Elana in p4"
"I think that Lucy's drawing, 'Magical Murrayfield' is very well done and contains lots of detail."
"I like 'The Path of Adventures' by Maisie, p7. I like the texture and the colours. It stands out because of the strong colours she has put in it."
"I like Hazel's picture because the river was not just blue, it was light blue and dark blue"
"I loved 'Autumn in Roseburn Park' because of the colours and perspective".
Emily, AM Nursery 'Kicking the Leaves' - "I love her picture and I love the trees and it is brilliant. It reminds me of being with my family. "
Leah K. P 6
"Sarah's 'Swaying in the Sunset' has brilliant colour choice and amazing composition. "
"I like how Sarah has used a mixture of media. I really felt like I was there. It is a great piece!"
Winter Windows Competition Winner!
We are delighted to anounce that Rebecca from p5B has been selected as a winner in this year's competion run by the City of Edinburgh Council. This year's theme was 'Architecture' and the pupils were invited to choose their favourite building and decorate it for Christmas. Rebecca chose to paint the tenaments in the Royal Mile.
Below is an excerpt from the winner's letter:
'Thank you for again entering your pupils’ work to the Winter Windows competition this year. We were inundated with well over 200 entries from primary, special and secondary schools across the city. Judges had the challenging task as judges to select only 25 winners...
I am delighted to say that one of your pupils was chosen to have their design printed onto a window to hang in East Princes Street Gardens from the end of this month:
Congratulations to: Rebecca, p5B
We hope that families will take the opportunity to view Rebecca's work which will be on display in throughout December.
P5 - Project Wonderland
Our P5 pupils are enjoying working with staff from the Royal Lyceum as part of 'Project Wonderland'. This week's session involved facepainting. The pupils enjoyed designing and creating images before choosing to paint their own, or a partner's face. The photos give a snapshot of the concentration involved!
