Edinburgh Primary ~ a community school with a passion for the arts!

Welcome to Edinburgh!


We are a thriving community school based in Queen's Road, Walthamstow.  At Edinburgh, we are passionate about the arts and make this a part  of our commitment alongside outstanding teaching and learning-delivered through our unique and immersive, project-led curriculum (see our curriculum section for more details). Edinburgh has always been a very creative school that recognises the importance of the arts as a way of enabling children to express themselves in a range of ways, increase self-esteem, develop resilience and more importantly find enjoyment from a hobby. 


We have a senior member of staff leading our arts agenda and she is ably supported by a team of excellent subject leaders and our wonderful Arts Council.  As a school, we embrace opportunities to enhance our arts provision both inside and outside the school day.  We are keen that we commit to a core offer for the arts which is detailed below:


*One Gallery/museum trip or visit each year 

*Specialist sports teaching for one half term a year

*An annual pantomime

*Taking part in class and year group productions that are performed to an audience

*A monthly art competition that pupils and parents can work on at home

*A half-termly performance festival where children can showcase their skills

*The offer of a wide range of peripatetic music lessons 

*The offer a wide range of art, dance, music and sport clubs


We have a dedicated teaching team here at Edinburgh, including a full-time sendco and learning mentor. We are passionate about learning and enrichment and we make sure that all children make good progress. We provide additional support should children require this for any additional needs.  We also have a new school library in place and are passionate about reading.  Throughout the school, we also subscribe to digital platforms so that children can enjoy reading in a range of ways.  As a school we follow the Read Write Inc programme for teaching early phonics and our early years learning follows a play based approach.


I hope this website provides you with a good overview of all that we do at Edinburgh Primary; however, to get a real feel for our school, please do come and visit us!  Nothing can be better than a walk around, seeing children learning in a range of inspiring ways, in a nurturing environment. 


Best wishes,
