Our website aims to provide you with a glimpse of what our school is all about and we hope you find it useful.
At Roseburn Primary we believe that children thrive in an environment in which they are happy, challenged and secure. Our aspirations for our children are summed up in our school motto, “Dream, Believe, Achieve”. 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.
I am proud of the work which we do here to develop all our children and feel privileged to be the head teacher at such a welcoming, community and child-centred school.
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.

In addition, two other works were shortlisted by the judging panels. Wll done to Laila from the nursery and Robert from p3/4 whose work was entered under the p4-7 theme, 'Horse'.
Interscholastics at Meadowbank
The Interscholastics is an annual athletics event for Primaries 6 and 7 that takes place at Meadowbank Stadium. It includes running, throwing and jumping events. Representing Roseburn this year were Ellie and Calvin in the High Jump, both got through to the latter stages, Ellie reaching the final. In the long jump Thea got to the final and Finlay Booth won a bronze medal. Finlay Burns and Morgan threw the cricket ball and with an epic throw Morgan managed to win the event earning her a gold medal. In the running events we brought home a range of different medals; Ellie’s silver medal in the 150m sprint; Jasmine’s bronze in the 600m and well done to Scott G for reaching the final of the 150m too. All 4 relay teams got to the final and both the P6 and P7 girls’ relay teams earned silver medals. In the end we stacked up an astonishing 26 points which won us the runners-up trophy ‘The McLeod Memorial Cup’. It was last won by Roseburn 29 years ago in 1987. We all really enjoyed our experience although we did come back a little bit sunburnt!
Studio to Stage
The Roseburn Choir was delighted to be invited to perform at an evening of song and dance at the Queen's Hall at the 'Studio to Stage' event on March 10th. The choir had a ten minute slot and performed three of their favourite songs - The Osprey, Castle on a Cloud, and the Gypsy Rover. It was very exciting to sing on such a big stage in front of so many people, and a wonderful opportunity to watch and listen to the presentations from other schools, which included drama, dance and school orchestras from primary and high schools across Edinburgh.
