About the school
Braehead Primary School was built in 1972. It is semi open plan with 3 wings radiating from a central area and administration corridor. During summer 2008 the school had a partial refurbishment. The early primary stages and the nursery are housed in the first wing. The classes surround a spacious communal area, which is used for shared resources and activities. Similarly, two of the other wings house the middle and upper primary classes. We have a large gym hall, which is used for all our P.E. curriculum; drama, whole school assemblies etc. It is also used for local clubs and youth organisations in the evening.
Education Scotland has responsibility for evaluating the quality of pre-school education, all schools, teacher education, community learning and development, further education and local authorities. They also publish reports about services for children and evaluate child protection services.
Each school has it own geographic area called a catchment area. Normally, your child will attend your local catchment school. If you wish your child to attend a school other than the catchment school you are required to make a placing request.
