Pupil Support Assistant (Gaelic) – Permanent
Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce

Salary: £19,687 – £19,969 (Pro-rata for part time and sessional)
Hours: 29.17 per week, 39 weeks per year

Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce is Edinburgh’s Gaelic-medium primary school, offering primary education and nursery provision for children in the City of Edinburgh and the Lothians. The school opened in August 2013. Our families come from a wide range of social and linguistic backgrounds. Most learners start at Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce with little or no Gaelic and therefore a key task from nursery onwards is to develop Gaelic language competence, using the immersion approach. The school roll has grown steadily year on year, with the school expanding, particularly at early and first level stage.

This session, we have sixteen primary classes and a nursery class, offering 1140 hrs. In addition, we have a nurture class as part of our commitment to Closing the Attainment Gap, funded by our allocated Pupil Equity Fund.

The leadership team consists of the Head Teacher, two Depute Head Teachers, two Principal Teachers and a Business Manager. Music instructors visit the school weekly. The school has a number of support staff in place to meet the needs of all learners. We are very well supported by our Parent Council which takes an active role in the life and work of the school. Many parents and community members play a key role as volunteers. The school is developing strong links within the community and is supported in this work by Comunn na Gàidhlig’s Gaelic Development Officer and the City of Edinburgh Council Corporate Gaelic Development Officer.

We are seeking a Pupil Support Assistant to join our staff team permanently.

This post is part time during term time. Applicants must be fluent Gaelic speakers.

Interviews will take place via Microsoft Teams.

This post is considered Regulated Work with Vulnerable Children and/or Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council.

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

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
