Dedridge Primary School is a non-denominational school. It serves the Dedridge East area of Livingston. In session 2016- 2017 the school roll is 183. The number of pupils registered for free school meals for P4-7 is 39%. Our school role includes 24 in the Autistic Spectrum Resource (ASR) for children from across the local authority with social, communication and language difficulties. Dedridge Primary and Glenvue Early Learning and Childcare Setting (ELC) are integrated and the ELC provides provision for pre-school 3 to 4 year olds, vulnerable 2 year olds as well as flexi-provision.
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 role is initially based with the oldest children in the resource. You 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.
