We are very proud of our relationship with the local community and ensure our children are actively involved in planning their own learning experiences, using the local area and resources as much as possible. We aim to provide a secure and friendly atmosphere in which each child can develop to their full potential educationally, socially and emotionally.

You will provide effective learning and teaching and carry out related activities and developments following local, national and school policies under the direction of the Head Teacher.

Dumfries and Galloway's approach to education looks to combine the traditional values, ethos and atmosphere of this unique corner of Scotland with fresh 21st Century thinking. We are seeking to appoint creative teachers with vision and a passion for learning. This post represents an excellent opportunity to be innovative in developing our culture of sharing and learning.
