Cedarbank School is a non- denominational secondary school, situated in the campus of James Young High School in the Dedridge area of Livingston. Our brand new school building makes provision for 110 young people in West Lothian who have  moderate learning needs, social and communication barriers to learning and a high level of vulnerability. The school offers a full secondary curriculum and has its own well-equipped Sports Hall, Art, Music, Science, CDT, Lifeskills and Home Economics rooms.  The school also benefits from natural woodland and outdoor learning areas of the playground which help to enrich the sustainability element of the curriculum. Partnership with James Young High School ensures some inclusive curriculum pathways and opportunities.

Our teaching staff include primary teachers, subject specialists, a Head Teacher, a Depute Headteacher who oversees the Broad General education, a Depute Headteacher for the Senior Phase and two Principal teachers.  Class sizes are 10 and each class is supported by an Advanced Pupil Support Worker. Cedarbank School has a supportive Parent Council and a Pupil Council in operation. We have recently transitioned from three learning sites to one building and work with a range of partners to enhance support for young people and broaden learning opportunities. This year we aim to extend parental engagement, family learning and partnership work to support our new school community. 

Ensuring a high quality learning experience for all learners by reducing individual barriers to learning lies is at the heart of the school aims. The Cedarbank staff work in partnership with partners, parents and the young people to ensure every young person has a tailored educational experience which enables each young person to develop the range of skills and qualities that they require now and in the future .   

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
