Our Staff

Teachers produce the graduate, and Scots' greatest asset is its staff. Informed by pedagogy, we value differentiated learning environments that can exist within a scope and sequence that is considered, progressive and measured to ensure all children develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Our teaching staff have the expertise to innovate whilst upholding academic rigour, offering a curriculum that is progressive and sequenced with seamless transitions from one stage to the next. With an enriching and flexible learning environment, complemented by a broad and rounded curriculum that encourages curiosity, Scots Staff consistently provide opportunities that will enable students to be creators in, and of, their world. Our supportive and inclusive teaching and learning environment supports both our staff and students to achieve to their highest levels.
