Our Staff

A well educated workforce:

Mrs Shanks places a strong expectation on herself and her staff to be lifelong learners. She is a firm believer in personal development and reflective practice. Her belief is that we are privileged to be part of the state education system and have a duty to ourselves, our pupils and our profession to be all we can be.

Mrs Shanks is very proud that her teaching staff are all engaged in professional development with many, who have or are undertaking, postgraduate study. Mrs Shanks is currently undertaking a Doctorate of Education at the University of Glasgow and feels it is very important, as Headteacher to make sure that she engages fully in the Scottish education system and has real knowledge on how lifelong learning helps in improving schools (most importantly this one). Mrs Shanks shares her education journey with the children regularly as it is important that they appreciate that learning is an ongoing process.
