Head Teacher’s Welcome

The staff and pupils at Nether Currie Primary School are delighted that you have chosen to send your child to our school and we all welcome you into our community.

Nether Currie Primary School is a non-denominational primary school in the South-West of the city of Edinburgh. We have a current roll of 178 children from Primary 1 to Primary 7. In August 2020, Nether Currie Primary School will include the addition of a brand-new nursery which will offer all-year round provision for 64 three and four-year-old children.

We have a strong sense of community, both within the school and out in the local area and we are fully committed to helping our children to become the best people that they can be.

Our staff team works together to provide a safe, nurturing environment where every child, and their family, are valued as individuals and where diversity is celebrated.

The principles of the Curriculum for Excellence are at the heart of our practice and we believe that our children benefit from having opportunities for personal development, becoming involved in the ethos and wider life of the school, as well as experiencing high quality teaching and learning across all areas of the curriculum.

We look forward to getting to know you better and beginning our journey together at Nether Currie Primary School.
