Role Purpose

Would you like to make a difference in the lives of children and young people in the Scottish Borders? Are you passionate about teaching, learning and inclusion and would love to work with learners and families within our setting for 2-18 and beyond?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated Principal Teacher Complex Needs to join us on a part time, permanent basis.

Jedburgh Grammar Campus has a current roll of 860 and was established in 2020, bringing together the town’s ELC setting, primary and secondary schools, along with a new enhanced provision for secondary aged learners. The objective set out for an intergenerational campus in Jedburgh was to establish a community asset which would deliver benefits to the health, wellbeing and learning opportunities across Jedburgh and the surrounding rural communities, summed up in our vision statement ‘Learning without limits’. The campus coming to fruition was the result of dedicated teamwork between the school and wider communities and Scottish Borders Council, with the most powerful voice throughout the consultation process being that of our young people. The core values of kindness, respect, achievement, wellbeing and learning were agreed through consultation with pupils, parents, staff and members of the community and are shared across the cluster.

Our beautiful rural location offers excellent opportunities for learning both inside and outdoors, and we benefit from flexible teaching spaces and state of the art technology. We are fortunate to work very closely with a range of partner agencies who support our children and families, and continue to benefit from being at the heart of a caring, supportive community. Building positive relationships is key to everything we do.

Essential

• A degree or diploma in education or PGCE/PGDE

• Full registration with General Teaching Council for Scotland

• Evidence of relevant continuing professional development.

•Experience of working with young people with a range of additional support needs, within a specialist setting

• Practical and theoretical knowledge of additional support needs
