Currently, Midlothian has 6 secondary schools, 32 primary schools (19 of which have nurseries) and 2 stand alone nursery schools. Our special school, Saltersgate, provides support for children with a range of physical, social, emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties. The schools range in size from our smallest primary school with around 20 children to our largest secondary with over 1200 pupils. We have a diverse range of school catchments, from rural to urban settings. We are fortunate to have a growing number of new build schools, with 15 of our primary schools and 1 secondary having been built within the last 10 years and several new builds planned.
St David’s High School Dalkeith is looking to appoint a committed and enthusiastic Fixed Term Teacher of Mathematics to join a successful and dynamic teaching team in Midlothian’s most improved secondary school.
Although the role is full time, if you are interested in part time work please apply and specify this on your application.
We are fully committed to implementing the work of Hattie’s Visible Learning and Dweck’s Growth Mindset in our learning and teaching strategies and are also taking a whole school approach to embedding Nurturing principles in all aspects of our work.
All teachers in the school have their own classroom (including science labs) and we are very fortunate with other resources for staff and students including an iPad/student ratio 1:4 and every member of staff being provided with their own iPad.
We are a Roman Catholic School and are committed to providing a welcoming learning environment through our caring and inclusive school ethos which is underpinned by the SCES Charter for Catholic Schools.
The school shares a Campus facility with Dalkeith High School; Saltersgate Special School and Woodburn Primary School and is situated at the east end of the Edinburgh city bypass approximately ½ hour from junction 3 of the M8 and 30 minutes from Edinburgh city centre.
