Edinburgh Steiner School

Class Teacher

In our rapidly changing world, having a Class Teacher who supports and cares for their pupils through most, if not all, of their Lower School years provides a haven of stability and continuity which is extremely rare in other schools.

From the start of formal education in Class 1 (age 6/7 years) until the end of Class 8 (age 14 years), the Class Teacher has overall responsibility and provides pastoral care for the class, thereby creating an ideal environment for sustained and supportive learning.

While the Class Teacher provides the Main Lesson each day, each class interacts with and enjoys the experience of a wide range of specialist subject teachers on a daily basis and throughout their Lower School years.
