Craigentinny is a non-denominational primary school which takes children from nursery age to primary seven. The building is within the Craigentinny Community.
At Craigentinny we work together to promote the values of honesty, equality, kindness, respect, perseverance and resilience. These values are promoted through all aspects of school life.
In addition to our well-equipped classrooms, we have a music room, a cooking room, a full sized gym hall, a library and a dining room which can be used for other curricular areas. There is an after-school club in association with the Royal High Primary School which gives working parents the flexibility they need and is a well used facility. We also offer a breakfast Club each morning from 8am.
The school grounds are extensive, boasting the only green playground available in the area. There is a large grassy area and a mature garden which is used by the nursery for outdoor learning opportunities, a trim trail facility plus a community woodland area. An outdoor classroom was constructed as in 2011, and provides a valuable resource for learning and teaching.
Additional Support at Craigentinny – an additional support need comes from anything which is a barrier to learning. Most or all schools will have some children with additional support needs of some kind. The education authority has many legal duties towards pupils with additional support needs. Information about this is contained in a booklet called “In On The Act : Information For The General Public” which is published on the education authority website at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/inontheact – or contact the additional support for learning team on 0131 469 3444.
