Welcome to Braidburn School

Situated in the south-west of Edinburgh, Braidburn School provides a supportive learning environment for learners with additional support needs aged 2½ to 18 years old.

Braidburn benefits from on-site multi-disciplinary therapy and medical teams in addition to our education staff. This helps our learners achieve their full potential.

Secondary Christmas Disco

On Wednesday night many pupils from our secondary returned to school in the evening for their Christmas disco! They all looked fantastic and had a great time. Tweed class spoke about their highlights which included…
• Dancing
• Playing games and winning prizes
• Good music
• Getting dressed up and seeing friends
• Party food

CAPR Style set up a table demonstrating their adaptive clothing and we had a Curriculum for Excellence presentation for parents & carers. A huge thanks to Friends of Braidburn for putting on festive refreshments in the staffroom!

On Friday parents, carers and esteemed guests were ‘wowed’ by the Oscar winning performances of our primary department. The whole of the primary worked extremely hard producing the nativity this year and it was fantastic. A Christmas market was held in the library with decorations made by our enterprise class, reindeer food, jewellery and much more. Our catering team also provided refreshments and packed lunches. Thank you to everyone who made it such a success!

Christmas Jumper Day

IMG_3533Thank you to everyone who contributed to Christmas Jumper Day! There was some fantastic jumpers from retro, some with sticky out noses and even some musical ones! We managed to raise £90 on the day for charity.

Christmas Lunch

Today we had our whole school Christmas lunch. It was absolutely lovely to see pupils and staff in their Christmas hats, listening to festive tunes, pulling crackers, telling rubbish jokes and enjoying a delicious 3 course meal!
