Our Handbook


Burnbrae Primary opened in 2012. It is situated in the Burnbrae & Hopefield area of Bonnyrigg. We currently support learners across our 120 child place nursery, our provision for children with complex needs and 19 mainstream classes. Children range from ages 3 – 12. Our children transfer on to Lasswade High School.

Our school vision is that we learn together, grow together and play together. This is the vision we are committed to living out every day. Our staff see themselves as learners and are continuing to develop themselves as professionals to ensure we provide the highest quality learning experiences for our learners every day. Our work is based on the Scottish values of integrity, passion, justice and respect.

We work closely with our parents and carers to ensure that we meet the needs of all our learners. Our parent council work in partnership with the school community striving to ensure that each individual learner has positive experiences while learning at Burnbrae.
