Class Teacher x 2, Ogilvie School Campus, 35 hours per week, Closing Date 25th November 2018

A wonderful opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and innovative individual to take up the post of Class Teacher at Ogilvie School Campus, Livingston.  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 is at the beginning of an exciting journey with the proposal to expand the school stages from primary into a 5-18 school.

The school is currently staffed by a Head Teacher, 1 Acting Principal Teacher, 9 teaching staff, 27 Pupil Support Workers and 2 Office staff. The school also has 1 Specialist music and physical movement teacher.

Our active Parent Council meets once per term and a new chairperson and office bearers were elected this term. To enable as many parents as possible to attend our Parent Council meetings we hold one during the day and one at night.

We also run a parent drop in session on a fortnightly basis; this is organised by the parents and supported by the school to provide any specific training support if required. The parents have worked hard this session and have raised a significant amount of money to help provide transport for trips for the children.

We are supported by a team of health professionals who regularly meet with staff, children and parents.

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.

West Lothian Council are committed to far reaching changes to the way we deliver our Education Services. These changes include giving you the support and environment that you need to get on with your job and develop your abilities. Our dedication is demonstrated by the whole council achievement of the Investors in People Standard and always aiming a little higher in our service delivery and improvements.

A relevant teaching qualification and registration with the General Teaching Council for Scotland is essential.
