Pupil Support

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Important Announcements

There are some changes to our current Pupil Support Team. Mrs Susan Ritson retires at the end of November. During her absence Mrs Heather MacRae  will be Acting Guidance PT for Torridon. Additionally Mr Ryan MacKintosh is currently Acting Guidance PT for Laggan during Miss Jaffray’s absence.

Please remember that your child’s Guidance PT should always be the first point of contact with the school.

Please see our Pupil Support page for more details about this and our Extended Pupil Support which also contains a number of changes.


Support for Learning

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Important Announcements

Our Support for Learning Department is undergoing a period of significant change as we integrate it more deeply with our guidance team to create an integrated Pupil Support Team that supports pupils in all aspects: learning, behaviour, social and emotional needs.

One innovative change is the use of Pupil Support (ASN) staff in supporting Pupil Support Classes in S5/6 and in particular providing support for pupils studying three, four or five Highers.

This follows quite significant staff changes due to retirements last session and an increase in the allocation of Pupil Support Assistants.

During the Easter break work will commence on the creation of a specialist Nurture Facility on A Floor (Red Square) that will be used by our Pupil Support Team and members of our Extended Support Team (external agencies).

The department page contains more details and their new Department Blog is now available to everyone.
