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.

Happy Easter!

Picture1Thank you to everyone who came along to our Easter assembly this afternoon. We also had an Easter themed tuck shop and an egg hunt to keep everyone busy all day!

We would like to wish everyone a restful holiday, and look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 21st April.

Family & Friends Social Evening

Thank you to everyone who supported our Braidburn Family and Friends Social Evening on Friday making it such a success. It was an entertaining and busy night with music, dancing, food, bingo and a quiz. A special thanks to the Q-Beats band and those people who donated time, equipment and food. A big well done to Sean for demonstrating his excellent number skills when he helped with the bingo! We have managed to raise over £200 for school funds!

Internet Safety

On Monday many of our secondary pupils attended an internet safety workshop with Firrhill High School’s community liason police officer, PC Lindsay Barr. PC Barr discussed the huge benefits of using the internet, but also the dangers that exist. All pupils were reminded about keeping safe online and encouraged to explore https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ for more top tips, games and information.

As promised on Friday, I’ve (reluctantly!) uploaded some more pictures from Red Nose Day! The total raised was a whopping £309!
