The Edinburgh Steiner School was founded on qualities of care, attention and respect which are central to the school community today.
All Steiner schools strive to embody this ethos by operating a non-hierarchical governance.
All major pedagogical (teaching) decisions are agreed by the College of Teachers, a group of experienced teachers who meet once a week in the evening to discuss the running of the school.
The Management Group (which is part of the College of Teachers) ensures that decisions are properly implemented.
The Board of Trustees are responsible for all legal, financial and employment matters relating to the school.
