St John’s Academy has promoted Scots, the mither tongue to many of our pupils, throughout the nursery, primary and secondary through a whole host of activities, from songs and rhymes, to Scots literature and poems, to celebrating Scots in our dedicated week each year.
For many of our young people with English as an additional language, learning about Scots helps them to better understand the words and phrases being used informally in school and in our communities. To Scots, recognising the beauty and creativity of our common tongue, helps them to fully appreciate the power of the spoken and written word.
