This post will initially be located within the John Muir Campus and pupil support is part of the remit.

Dunbar Primary School is a very large school split over two campuses; the roll continues to rise as additional housing is built in Dunbar. We currently have over 1,200 pupils from Nursery – Primary 7.  

John Muir Campus currently has fifteen P1 – P3 classes and five rooms in our nursery.  We also have an Authority Communication Base (The Cove) within John Muir Campus for primary pupils.  All pupils in The Cove are allocated a mainstream class and where possible, depending on the severity and need, we aim to integrate them into class as much as possible.

Lochend Campus has twenty P4 – P7 classes.  

The Head Teacher has no class commitment; there are six deputies, three based at the John Muir campus, with one who has responsibility for The Cove, and three at the Lochend campus. The school is also supported by two full-time PT Inclusion and Support, two PT with full-time class commitment, an Enhanced Support Officer, a Business Support Officer and an Early Years Centre Manager who has responsibility for the nursery

We see ourselves as a community school and work hard to engage with and support the community of Dunbar. We have very supportive and proactive parents, a large and enthusiastic volunteer network and pupils who are very engaged and motivated to learn.  We are proud of our welcoming and successful learning community.
