Canal View Primary School is located in the Wester Hailes area of Edinburgh overlooking the Union Canal.  We have woodland areas attached to both the school and nursery playgrounds which our children are able to use for outdoor learning.

The school constantly strives to ensure all children are able to develop in line with the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence.  Through their learning and wider achievements we provide opportunities for our children to become Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors.

During the school session we offer a range of lunchtime and after school clubs arranged by our Active Schools Co-ordinator and class teachers.  These are always very popular with our children and are aimed at their interests or to provide activities that are not readily available to them otherwise.

We have a supportive parent body who have become increasingly involved in the life of the school over recent years.
