The school management team is made up of the HT and PT. Nursery classes are supported by a nursery teacher, nursery nurses and Early Year’s Officer.

Distributed leadership is promoted across the whole staff. Staff demonstrate strong collegiality and teamwork which maintains the positive climate for learning in the school.

Nurture group approaches and strong partnership working supports developments in key areas of learning across the school and nursery classes to meet the wide range of GIRFEC needs.

The school works closely with the Parent Council, local parish and wider community and makes good use of the local community wing to engage in family learning programmes.
