School Handbook

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Welcome to the Ratho Primary School website. We are delighted to share information about our school with you here.  The website aims to offer an overview of the school and the education children receive with us.

The school is non-denominational and caters for the village of Ratho, from Nursery to Primary 7.  Currently we have around 265 children on our school roll and 34 in our nursery. Classes are arranged by age.  At present there are 12 classes (including the nursery class).

At Ratho Primary we pride ourselves on constantly striving to provide the best possible education for your child.  Our committed staff work hard to present exciting and engaging learning experiences and we aim for the highest levels of achievement for every child.

To make our websites easy to use we have divided the information into six main sections: –

School Information 

Parent Zone


Support for Pupils

School improvement

Class Pages

If you have any questions, or would like any further information on any aspect of this handbook or the education of your child, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

We look forward to getting to know you and your family.

Best Wishes,

Peter Gibb

Head Teacher

Ratho Primary School
