Job Description

Education and Children's Services

Early Years Practitioner (Gaelic Medium)
Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce

Salary: £24,890 - £28,854 per year (pro rata for sessional)
Hours: 36 hours 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.

The leadership team consists of the Head Teacher, 2 Depute Head Teachers, 2 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 two Early Years Practitioners to join our staff team permanently; one to be based in our nursery and one to be based with our Primary 1 classes.

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.  For roles in grade 5 or above, annual increments in our contribution zones are dependent on achieving agreed performance goals.

Requirements

’S e Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Dhùn Èideann, a’ tabhann foghlam bun-sgoile agus sgoil-àraich ann am Baile Dhùn Èideann agus Lodainn. Dh’fhosgail an sgoil anns an Lùnasdal, 2013. Tha ar teaghlaichean a’ tighinn bho shuidheachaidhean sòisealta is cànanach gu math farsaing. Bidh a’ mhòr-chuid de luchd-ionnsachaidh a’ tòiseachadh aig Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce le glè bheag de Ghàidhlig agus mar sin ’s e a’ Ghàidhlig a’ leasachadh an obair as cudromaiche bhon sgoil-àraich, a’ cleachdadh a’ mhodail bhogaidh.

Tha àireamhan nan sgoilearan air a bhith a’ fàs gu cunbhalach bliadhna an dèidh bliadhna, leis an sgoil a’ leudachadh, gu sònraichte sna tràth-bhliadhnaichean. Tha an ceannardas an-dràsda air a dhèanamh suas den cheannard, dà leas cheannardan, dà phrìomh thidsear agus manaidsear gnìomhachais. Bidh oidean ciùil ’san sgoil gach seachdain. Tha grunn luchd-taic aig an sgoil, a’ toirt taic do fheumalachdan gach sgoilear. Tha sinn a’ faighinn tòrr taic bho Chomhairle nam Pàrant a tha a’ gabhail pàirt gnìomhach ann am beatha agus obair na sgoile. Tha mòran phàrantan agus buill coimhearsnachd againn mar shaor-thoilich. Tha an sgoil a’ leasachadh ceanglaichean làidir taobh a-staigh na coimhearsnachd agus a’ faighinn taic san obair seo bho Oifigear Leasachaidh Gàidhlig, Comunn na Gàidhlig agus Oifigear Leasachaidh Corporra Ghàidhlig aig Comhairle Baile Dhùn Èideann.

Tha sinn a’ sireadh dà Neach Obrach airson nan Tràth Bhliadhnaichean airson a bhith pàirt den sgioba sgoile again, aon anns an sgoil-àraich agus aon ann an Clas 1.

’S e dreuchd làn-ùine, maireannach a tha seo.
