Currently, Midlothian has 6 secondary schools, 32 primary schools (19 of which have nurseries) and 2 stand alone nursery schools. Our special school, Saltersgate, provides support for children with a range of physical, social, emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties. The schools range in size from our smallest primary school with around 20 children to our largest secondary with over 1200 pupils. We have a diverse range of school catchments, from rural to urban settings. We are fortunate to have a growing number of new build schools, with 15 of our primary schools and 1 secondary having been built within the last 10 years and several new builds planned.
Lasswade Primary School is non-denominational school serving the Lasswade and Bonnyrigg districts of Midlothian. We are part of the Lasswade Associated School Group and we work closely with the other primary schools and Lasswade High School to ensure a smooth transition to S1. Our role is currently 394 consisting of 2 classes at every stage, and a 30/30 Nursery.
Our open-plan school is set in it’s own grounds, with a large playing field and astro-turf area. The main building consists of 5 wings and our Nursery. Our large hall serves the dual purpose of dining hall and gym, whilst our small hall serves as an ICT suite or Expressive Art area.
We have a very supportive and enthusiastic staff who believe in team work, have opportunities to exercise initiative, lead developments, participate in professional dialogue sessions and are committed to developing high quality learning and teaching experiences. Our school team consists of a Senior Leadership Team, 18 Teachers, a Support for Learning Teacher, Music, Art and Design and PE Specialists, 8 Learning Assistants and an Administration team.
Our school vision is “Living it, Learning it, Loving it.......” and we pride ourselves on providing quality learners’ experiences which develops our learners’ skills for life, learning and work. As a school we work closely with our parents, local community and professionals from other agencies to ensure we are meeting the needs of all our learners. Lasswade Primary School has a very supportive and active Parent Council who supports the school throughout the year by fundraising and by contributing to our developments
