We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and dynamic individual who will have the necessary experience to assist in taking forward the principles of Curriculum for Excellence in order to support our young people and the improvement agenda of the school and authority. This Additional Support for Learning Teacher post will involve working with and supporting our learners across the school through the use of targeted and universal interventions to ensure their needs are being met. This teacher will be aware of and be able to utilise strategies to improve learner understanding and engagement, will be able to work cooperatively with staff to ensure learner needs are being met and will be a reflective practitioner with a commitment to on-going professional learning. 

The principles of GIRFEC are embedded in everything we do at Springfield Primary and Bonnytoun Nursery. The school works hard to identify and overcome barriers to learning and we pride ourselves on providing an inclusive and nurturing environment for our children and their families.
