£10,424 - £11,015 (18 Hours per week, Term-time only)
Blairgowrie High School

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic Pupil Support Assistant to join our Support for Learning Department on a part time, permanent basis.

Whilst the majority of your time will be spent supporting pupils in subject classes and small extracted groups, there is an expectation that on occasion, and depending on the needs of the service, you may be required to support pupils in our Intensive Support Provision (ISP). The ISP supports pupils with severe and complex needs.

The main duties of the role include helping pupils to develop their literacy, numeracy and health & wellbeing in class or in small groups as well as assessing the needs of learners.

About the School

Blairgowrie High School is the sole secondary school for East Perthshire, and covers a wide catchment area of beautiful landscapes. For leisure time, the area offers many wonderful opportunities for outdoor pursuits and pastimes but is close enough to Perth and Dundee if it is city pursuits you are after. To the West we extend almost to Dunkeld; to the North our area stretches up Glenshee past the Spittal, to the border with Aberdeenshire Council; to the East our area extends to the Angus border and finally to the South-East, Tullybaccart – the highest point on the road between Coupar Angus and Dundee – is our boundary with Dundee Council.

Our associated Primary Schools are Alyth, Burrelton, Coupar Angus, Glendelvine, Kettins, Kirkmichael, Meigle, Newhill, Rattray and St Stephen’s.
