In Partnership with parents and the wider community, we aim to provide a stimulating and interesting environment, in which all children are encouraged to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum, and to be good citizens who show respect to others and for the environment.
History of the School
The land around Broomhouse was used for farming for hundreds of years. In the 17th century farms in the area cultivated broom as a crop for use as fuel and as an underlay for thatch for the cottage roofs. The agricultural use of the area continued until the years after the Second World War. A growing population and a new Education Act required the city to provide new housing for its population and bigger and better school for its children.
Broomhouse primary was sited in various buildings, including the old St Joseph's on Calder Road. Eventually a new building was opened on Saughton Road in November 1957. The school stayed in this building until November 2002 when a new Broomhouse Primary was opened by the then Lord Provost, Eric Milligan.

The new build brought together Broomhouse and St Joseph's Primary Schools to share the one building each with its own identity and facilities.

Broomhouse Primary also has close links with Forrester Secondary School and three other primaries in the local area - Carrick Knowe, Gylemuir and Murrayburn.

Nursery and School Liaison

The head teacher in the primary school has responsibility for the Nursery Class and School liasion. The Nursery staff are part of the school staff and we all meet together weekly.

A programme of transition from nursery to primary is in place.

Nursery provision is educational and well planned. It is staffed by a trained teacher and trained nursery nurses. They strive to educate the children socially and intellectually, putting a lot of importance on the child and its environment. Learning is achieved through play.

Nursery staff liaise with the Head Teacher, Depute Head Teacher and staff in the Primary School and are well aware of 3-14 provision set down by the Scottish Education Department. Nursey is a link towards easy integration into Primary School
