Welcome to the web pages of Murrayburn Primary School.

We hope you’ll find the information contained within these pages informative and useful.

Murrayburn Primary opened in 1939 serving a catchment area in the South West of Edinburgh. A Nursery unit opened within Murrayburn Primary School in the early 1970s and in 2014 Calderglen Nursery, operating from a second site, became part of the Murrayburn Family. In 2016 two Nursery units became the Murrayburn and Calderglen Early Years Centre, operating as a separate entity. We are both non-denominational and serve children from age 3-12 years.

Murrayburn Primary has a roll of about 375 pupils and the Early Years Centres between them accommodate about 100 pupils in both morning and afternoon sessions.

All our units are staffed by a dedicated and supportive team who work very hard to provide the best opportunities for all our boys and girls in a safe and happy environment.

Pupils leaving Murrayburn after Primary 7 generally move on to Forrester High School who we work closely with, to ensure positive transition for all our pupils.
