Balbardie Primary School is a non-denominational school which serves the town of Bathgate. In session 2017-2018 the school roll is 429. Our school role includes 18 in the Autistic Spectrum Resource (ASR) for children from across the local authority with social, communication and language difficulties. Bathgate West Nursery School is also managed by the Head Teacher at Balbardie PS.

The school has very effective partnerships with our stakeholders and these positive relationships also work well with a wide range of organisations/agencies outside and beyond the school. These partnerships have been successful in supporting all our children with a wide range of challenges.

This class teacher will be responsible for the learning, teaching and pastoral care of 6 children within the unit. An understanding of children on the autistic spectrum is preferable for this role although not essential.
