We are very much looking forward to welcoming new P.1 pupils to our Burnside family in August. In preparation for this, we will be inviting our 'Burnside Butterflies' in to school on the afternoons of Friday 9th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th June (exact times tbc via e-mail) to visit their classrooms, meet classmates and be introduced to their teachers. We invite one parent/carer along on these days also so that we can provide further school information. Mrs. McGarvey has been catching up with parents/carers via telephone and visiting our local nurseries.

If you have had a placing request granted recently, we ask that you e-mail us your child's full birth certificate as soon as possible. Please e-mail to   office@burnside-pri.s-lanark.sch.uk  along with a contact telephone number and we will be in touch.

Our pupils and our school community wanted our school values to reflect GIRFEC (Getting It Right For Every Child) as we believe these are the building blocks of all learning. They shape our behavious and interactions with each other. It is important that we live these values every day; that we talk about them and commit to fulfilling them. Our 'Happy High 5' values mean we all strive to be:-

Safe     Healthy     Active     Respectful    Responsible
