Learning Enhancement

In addition to the Early Years, Middle Primary and Upper Primary Departments, we have the Heriot's Junior School Learning Enhancement Department. This department consists of a team of fully qualified, experienced Primary teachers who do not have class teacher responsibility. We believe that this department is unique to Heriot's and, since 1999, it has had a huge impact on our children's learning.

The Learning Enhancement Staff deliver a wide ranging programme focussing on how to learn rather than what to learn. Programmes are delivered to all pupils from Nursery to P7 on Resilience, Philosophy, Thinking Skills, Emotional Intelligence and Equality and Diversity.

The Learning Enhancement staff also team teach with Junior School class teachers focussing on a variety of small groups of children at different times. This enables us to truly meet the needs of all pupils. Our Science Coordinator and Able Child Coordinator are based in the Learning Enhancement Department
