An exciting opportunity has arisen for a pupil support worker to join our successful, dynamic and expanding school team within Winchburgh Primary School and Early Learning Centre. The school is a non-denominational primary with a rising school roll, currently standing at 400 primary children and 128 children in our early learning centre. The school benefits from a diverse catchment area with a Free Meal Entitlement of around 9%.

We work in close partnership with the newly open Winchburgh Academy and our primary partners at Holy Family Primary School. Pupils in the upper years of primary regularly undertake learning at the newly opened Sports & Wellbeing Hub and within the Winchburgh Academy building – this is building unique and strong links to support the growing community and the overall transition experiences for learners.
