“Edenside Primary School is a community where everyone is respected and valued. Through creativity, originality and effort we aim to achieve success and fulfillment for all.” As a parent or carer, you will have no doubt at all about what makes a good school. I am sure you share our view here at Edenside that first and foremost children need to be happy and secure in a safe environment. When this is in place, younger children are happy to separate from their carer, and all children across the stages of the school thrive in their learning.
Good, positive behaviour management underpins our ethos here. I have a high visibility across the school, as do my management team, and we are assigned to a playground area every day with our support staff, to ensure children play in safety and harmony. We have high expectations across our whole school community with regard to courtesy, manners and how we treat other people. We are lucky to have such a cheerful, well-mannered and helpful bunch of children, testament to the values you share with them at home.
At Edenside, the pastoral care of our children sits in equal importance to the priority we place on learning, in a school that is caring and inclusive, with a special place in the heart of our community.

The high point of our assembly was when our very own Charlie Bucket, Aidan Whitson from P6T, found the Golden Ticket in his chocolate bar. Scott Shearer (P5R), Callum Moffat (P2/3) and Jamie Hume (P3C) were also delighted with their silver star book token awards! The rest of the children in the school were equally happy with their delicious bar of “Cocoa Black” chocolate and many children are planning trips on the Borders Railway soon.
