THIS POST IS FOR IMMEDIATE START
Windyknowe Primary School is a non-denominational school serving the community of Bathgate, West Lothian. Our catchment area is wide spread and there are a number of children who are transported to school. The school was built in 1963 and currently accommodates a nursery class (60 – am and 50 – pm) and 15 primary classes. Our current primary school roll is 402 with 53 children attending our morning nursery session and 34 in the afternoon session. Our decile band is 8.
The school’s leadership team for session 2018 - 19 consists of: Head Teacher, Depute Head Teacher, Chartered Teacher and 2 Principal Teachers.
We have been effective in establishing a shared vision (Ready, Responsible, Respectful) and values across the school community. The leadership team has continued to work closely with all staff, pupils and parents to implement the improvement priorities identified in the school’s 2018-2019 School Improvement Plan. In addition, the school has furthered its work within the local community, enhanced opportunities provided for children out with school hours and engaged with our cluster schools to improve the work of the school. Our link secondary school is Armadale Academy, although some of our P7 pupils choose to move on to Bathgate Academy. We have strong links with both.
We provide a progressive, relevant, challenging and enjoyable curriculum with opportunities for personalisation and choice. We strive to ensure that our pupils have the highest quality learning experiences. We aim to provide learning opportunities that result in a creative and enterprising attitude in our pupils, to develop a sense of pride and ambition to contribute positively to the local, national and international community.
Windyknowe Primary School offers the opportunity for all pupils to succeed. We strive to offer all of our pupils the highest possible standard of education in a safe, caring and stimulating environment - an environment in which all members of the school community are valued and their achievements recognised.
As Support for Learning teacher, you would work in partnership with all stakeholders within Windyknowe Primary School to ensure a high quality pupil centred experience that reflects curricular design principles and entitlements with the ultimate aim of maximised achievement and attainment for all.
A relevant teaching qualification and registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland is essential.
