• Are you kind, caring and passionate about supporting children and young people?
• Do children and young people respond well to your support?
• Do you have the skills and values to support young people to thrive?
• Would you like to join a wonderful school and team at the start of an exciting journey as the Support for Learning department moves into new and more spacious premises within the school.

Craigroyston Community High School is a non-denominational secondary community school serving a catchment area in the northwest of Edinburgh. In the school’s catchment there are 3 associated Primary Schools; Craigroyston, Forthview and Pirniehall. The Locality is undergoing regeneration with 750 new homes being built.

The school’s catchment is in a designated area of high deprivation. Free Meal Entitlement is 40% and one quarter of our pupil body have additional support for learning requirements. Approximately 10% of our pupil cohort are LAC. The vision for the school reflects this need and a range of nurturing and inclusive measures (including a zero-exclusion approach) have been introduced to best support all young people that attend the school. We benefit from close links with a range of partners.

The curriculum rationale is to meet the needs of every young person so that when they leave school they have a portfolio of skills, experiences, qualifications and a knowledge of the job market to ensure they enter a sustained positive destination. To that end the school strongly encourages all young people to stay on at school until the end of S6. An innovative, aspirational Senior Phase linked to employment, using vocational courses and strong college links as well as traditional subject provision ensures that every young person has a curriculum that suits their needs and ambitions.

The school is firmly committed to raising attainment and promoting achievement. The School Improvement Plan reflects local, City of Edinburgh Council and national priorities. For further information visit: https://craigroyston.wordpress.com/

This post is regulated work with children and/or protected adults under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. The preferred candidate will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check.  Where an individual has spent a continuous period of 3 months or more out with the UK in the last 5 years, an Overseas Criminal Record Check will be required. You will be required to provide this check. An unconditional offer of employment and commencement in the post will be subject to the outcome of both these pre-employment checks being deemed satisfactory.

As part of our goal to improve our organisational culture and create a great place to work together for the people of Edinburgh, we want to make sure that we’re bringing the best people into our roles, not just in their skills and experience but also in their approach to work.

To help achieve this, we’re changing the way we interview and assess candidates by moving from a competency-based interview approach to a behavioural and technical (skills for the job) based approach. This new way of interviewing will allow us to assess how you think and how you would bring Our Behaviours of Respect, Integrity and Flexibility into your ways of working.


We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.
