Transforming learning and teaching, inspiring learners, improving attainment and supporting young people to achieve their potential is what we want our schools to achieve.

Victoria Park School caters for pupils with a broad range of difficulty including complex learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorder. There is a nursery provision for pupils aged 3-5 years and a primary department from P1 to P7. In August 2011 we moved to a brand new purpose built school and share a campus with High Mill Primary School.

Our pupils benefit from smaller class sizes and higher staff ratios to support their learning. As with mainstream education we follow Curriculum for Excellence. In Victoria Park we adapt the curriculum to meet the needs of all pupils and use active learning, practical tasks and the community to enable learning to take place. Pupils enjoy riding for the disabled in the primary department and all pupils have access to soft play, light room and hydrotherapy pool within Victoria Park and library and ICT suite located within High Mill Primary. The pupils have access to a courtyard, for breaks and play and the area is specifically designed to meet the needs of all the pupils within Victoria Park School.

It is our mission to make positive meaningful changes in the lives of young people. We aim to provide an exceptional learning and working environment for pupils and staff and work in partnership with parents, support staff and other professionals.

Education Resources are committed to the education, care and welfare of young people in a childcare environment.

You will assist in the delivery of the curriculum and contribute to whole school initiatives, as appropriate.

You will carry out the range of duties outlined in Annexe B of "A Teaching Profession for the 21st Century"
