About Us

The Clovenstone area was originally farm land; in the late 1960s, when new housing was needed to accommodate families from the centre of Edinburgh, this land was acquired and building was started, resulting in the area known as Wester Hailes today.

Image of main entrance to Clovenstone Primary SchoolClovenstone Primary School was opened in November 1975. It was the only school in the Wester Hailes area at that time. There were no catholic schools in the area, so Clovenstone incorporated religious instruction into its curriculum for Catholic pupils, becoming an integrated Catholic and non-Catholic primary school.

Image of reception area in Clovenstone Primary SchoolOf open plan design, it was built to hold 500 children, but on opening there were more than 800 children on the role. At present there are approximately 290 children, including the Nursery.

Image of library in Clovenstone Primary SchoolClovenstone Primary has excellent links with its feeder high school, WHEC, and the high quality transition programme from P7 to S1 provides input in Art, Music, PE, French and Science.

Image of computer suite in Clovenstone Primary SchoolThe school has its own kitchen, serving both Clovenstone Primary School and some of the other local schools. In addition we are lucky enough to have a library, well stocked with a wide selection of new books and periodicals, and an art room. Our computer suite houses 25 new Mac Mini computers and a data projector so that all classes have the opportunity of working there.


Dress Code:

We want to make our school somewhere to be proud of by dressing in a way which shows all our pupils are ready to work. All children are encouraged to wear school sweatshirts or school shirt and tie with dark self-coloured trousers or skirt. By supporting our dress code we believe there are many advantages. These are:

  • Encouraging a sense of belonging and pride in the school

  • Encouraging a purposeful attitude to school work

  • Enhancing the image of the school in the community

  • Improving school security

Sweatshirts can be purchased / ordered from the school office.


We strive to met the needs of all the children in our school and most of the time their behaviour is excellent. We work at maintaining and developing a friendly, safe and secure environment and to promote good attitudes to learning and co-operation. Our behaviour management scheme rewards positive bahaviour and we have an excellent record which compares favourably with other schools. A recent School Review report praised many aspects of our work with school pupils, including the effectiveness of pastoral care.

Pupil Safety:

If a child is ill, is going to be absent from school, or is going to be late, please let us know by telephone or verbal message first thing in the morning. We operate a computer-based absence notification system and if we have an unexplained absence, we will make contact with you to establish that your child is safe.


The purpose of giving homework is to raise attainment by actively involving parents in their child's learning. The main types of homework are tasks which are part of the curriculum, work arising from class discussion or pieces of work which complement class work. The children should not find the homework too difficult as it will have already been explained in class.

Parent Consultations:

We offer parents the opportunity to discuss their child's progress with the class teacher twice a year. If parents wish to discuss any issue with the teacher outwith these dates, an appointment can be made through the Head Teacher. The dates for this school year will be:

  • Thursday 27 September, from 3.30pm to 8pm

  • Thursday 28 February, from 3.30pm to 8pm
