Dunbar Primary School is a very large school split over two campuses; the role continues to rise as additional housing is planned for Dunbar. We currently have 1,203 pupils from Nursery – Primary 7.

John Muir Campus has sixteen P1 – P3 classes, eight classes in our nursery and houses a Wraparound care facility. We also have an Authority Communication Base (The Cove) within John Muir Campus for primary pupils.  All pupils in The Cove are allocated a mainstream class and where possible, depending on the severity and need, we aim to integrate them into class as much as possible.

Lochend Campus has twenty P4 – P7 classes. A new extension was completed in August 2016 that included an additional four classrooms, a music room, meeting room and support room.

The Head Teacher has no class commitment; there are 5 deputies all with 0.2 FTE, two based at each campus and one who has responsibility for The Cove. The school is also supported by a full-time PT Inclusion and Support, a full-time PT who has responsibility for the nursery and one other PT with full-time class commitment.

We see ourselves as a community school and work hard to engage with and support the community of Dunbar. We have very supportive and proactive parents, a large and enthusiastic volunteer network and pupils who are very engaged and motivated to learn. We are proud of our welcoming and successful learning community.

Further details about Dunbar Primary can be found on our school website ( and school twitter page (@DunbarPrimary).

We warmly welcome enquiries and visits from interested candidates. Please contact a member of the Senior Management Team to arrange.
