Heriot Primary School
Heriot Primary School provides primary education for classes P1 to P7. It is a joint school with Fountainhall Primary School. Both are small rural schools with composite classes.
Fountainhall Primary School Nursery is the Early Learning and Childcare Setting from age 3 to school age provided by Scottish Borders Council. The nursery feeds into both schools. At Heriot Primary there is an After School Club provided by the Heriot Country Kids charity. The After School Club has strong links to both schools.
For contact details please go to the school page on the Scottish Borders Council website.
School restarts on Wednesday 21st August.
The Eco Committee, run by the pupils, has started an eco shop selling a variety of environmentally friendly items. The shop is based in the outdoor cabin at Heriot Primary School and open on Friday at 12:15 during the school term. You may also find the Eco Shop at the pop-up cafe at Macfie Hall on Sundays.
Mini Book Bank
A free community library for children (0-12yrs) open every Friday 12:15 to 13:00 (term-time) in the outdoor cabin at Heriot Primary School. Also open at 10:00 on Saturdays for the second half of the summer holidays.
The school is running several recycling schemes which are open to the community. Items that can be recycled are biscuit wrappers, old ink cartridges, beauty product packaging, batteries and old pens. There is a recycling depot in the outdoor cabin available during school times.
Crisps packets, of any brand, and Pringles cans/tubes have been added to the list of items that can be recycled at school through Terracycle.
Our first shipment of biscuit wrappers was sent off a couple of weeks ago. We earned 1,466 points (£14.66) to spend on eco products for our school and helped reduce waste! Thank you to those who have contributed to this.
Please view the following posters for more information on what can be recycled.

The children have created a community garden in the outdoor learning area. The hope is that there may be some small crops available for the community to pick over the summer holidays - in return for some care of the garden.
The Parent Council is composed of elected members from the Parent Forum. The Parent Forum includes all the parents of pupils enroled at the school. All parents are invited to come along and learn more about the school.
