Lossiemouth High School
What the school says...
Lossiemouth High School is now a "School of Ambition" which means that it has been selected, after a rigourous process by the Scottish Executive, to receive additional funding to take forward it's initiatives. These include: leadership, coaching and mentoring.
Opportunities for leadership training at all levels will be supported through the additional budgets available to the school. Some major accomplishments have taken place over the past year. All staff have undertaken solution oriented working training and "assessment is for learning" strategies are widely used throughout the school. Twelve S2 pupils and three members of staff journeyed to the Island of Skye and spent a week at the Columba 1400 Ambassador's Leadership Academy learning about perseverence, awareness and service, whilst also learning about the ability that lies within every individual. Peer supporters are making a valuable contribution to school life. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
Support for Learning Staff In Lossiemouth High school supports pupils and staff in any of: mainstream classes, teaching in small groups and /or working with individual pupils in the Support for Learning Department, whichever is appropriate. Pupils who are undertaking a full range of qualifications attend Supported Study groups in the Support for Learning Department and subject specialists work hand in hand with support staff to ensure that these young people achieve their full potential. This session, due to a small increase in staffing, the Support for Learning Department has been able to address the needs of a group of talented students who will sit qualifications 2-3 years earlier than their peers. Staff in the Support for Learning department have wide teaching experience in various areas of pupil support. One teacher has a background in working with emotionally disturbed young people, another comes from a Special school background and has taught pupils with Down's Syndrome and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Staff regard parents as partners in the education process and the Support for Learning Department has an "open door" policy where parents can consult staff and meet for advice and support. This is mutually beneficial. The school now boasts a new Pupil Support Suite encompassing the Support for Learning Department and Guidance Department. This enhanced provision allows pupils with severe physical disabilities and more complex learning difficulties to attend Lossiemouth High School with their peers. The learning experience of pupils has been improved with the opening of this new facilty and pupils self esteem has been raised as they feel much more a part of the school. Staff in other departments in Lossiemouth High School work in collaboration with Support for Learning staff to support pupils and to ensure that they achieve their full potential.
