Principal Teacher, Murrayfield Primary School, 35 hours per week, Closing date 14th March 2021

Murrayfield Primary School is a non-denominational school serving the community of Blackburn in West Lothian. The school community consists of 10 Primary classes, a 40/40 Early Learning and Childcare Centre and a Language Centre.

The Language Centre provides part-time, small group class contexts, with a high adult to child ratio for children with significant developmental language disorder from ELC’s and primary schools across the authority. Speech and Language assessments have shown that the children have the potential to achieve a series of short-term targets and make significant progress over the duration of their placement.

We are aiming to recruit a Principal Teacher to lead and oversee improvement priorities within the Language Centre and work in partnership with the Primary and ELC settings to develop a shared approach to Literacy development. 

We are keen to employ a diverse workforce that reflects the people of Scotland. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and particularly from groups currently under-represented, including people with disabilities, those from minority ethnic communities or from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds
