Ogilvie School Campus is a school for children with a range of additional support needs arising from complex difficulties, sensory impairments, physical disabilities and Autism spectrum disorder. The school catchment area covers the whole of West Lothian Council.
The school is growing year on year, with the start of our through school starting this academic next year. This will see the first Secondary pupils take forward their education at Ogilvie School Campus. The school will be undergoing significant change over the coming years both structural and Educational to create a dynamic and forward thinking establishment that will allow all pupils needs to be met in a nurturing environment. Effective learning and teaching is a priority and works alongside a nurturing ethos within the school. Staff are, creative, barrier removing and caring in approaches allowing pupils to access the curriculum appropriately. We are keen to celebrate every child’s individual success. Therefore, all staff set high expectations to encourage young people to be all they can be in order that they achieve their individual potential. This will allow them to leave school as effective contributors, successful learners, confident individuals, and responsible citizens.
The school is currently staffed by a Head Teacher, 1 Acting Principal Teacher, 12 teaching staff, 39 Advanced Pupil Support Workers and 3 Office staff. The school roll is currently 78 children. We have recently recruited a Depute Head Teacher who will take up post early next year as an addition to the management compliment.
We are supported by a team of health professionals who regularly meet with staff, children and parents. School nurse (1 day a week), Community pediatrician, Speech and language therapists, Physiotherapist, Occupational therapist and Children and Mental health team
There is a very positive ethos across the school, staff, parents and partners work very well together to create a whole community to provide the best possible care for our children.
A relevant teaching qualification and registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland is essential.
