About us

Braidwood Primary School Today

We pride ourselves on having a very committed team of teaching and non-teaching staff. Parents are very supportive and we benefit greatly from the involvement of an interested School Board and a very active Parent Teachers Association.

The school is bright with attractive displays of pupils' work. There is a calm, purposeful environment and our pupils are encouraged towards increasing independence within their learning. Our staff implement effective strategies to make learning as interesting and meaningful for the children as possible.

We consistently strive to give our pupils as rich an education as possible. In line with Scottish Executive 5-14 Guidelines we provide an interesting, stimulating curriculum in the key areas of Mathematics, Language, Expressive Arts including Art/Design, Drama, Music and Physical Education, Environmental Studies, Health and Religious & Moral Education. We also implement a programme throughout the school focusing on the children's Personal and Social Development.

In recent years, our pupils have consistently achieved in excess of 90% in relation to National Assessments in reading, writing and mathematics.

We have a very active Pupil Council which provides the children with an opportunity to raise, discuss and take forward initiatives of their choice. The Pupil Councils reps, P.3-7, are elected by their classmates following campaigning. The Pupil Council were responsible for developing the idea of a nature garden which now has pride of place at the entrance to the school. The pupil council also initiated the idea of positive play games which pupils access at breaks.

Our pupils participate in a variety of extra-curricular clubs including football, netball, recorder and craft.
