Beatlie School and Early Learning and Childcare meets the needs of children from 3 – 18 with profound and complex disabilities. The Head Teacher, along with the Depute Head Teacher and Principal Teacher work very closely to ensure the highest quality learning and teaching opportunities for all children. In recent years there has been a strong focus on ensuring learning and teaching is provided at an appropriate developmental level, embedding sensory learning and introducing a play-based curriculum. Evidencing pupil progress is an on-going, reflective process which is revisited regularly within school improvement planning. The school had a very positive validation of its work by West Lothian Council in November 2017, with ‘Ensuring Wellbeing, Equality and Inclusion’ being graded as Excellent. Last year, the school was assessed and maintained its Gold Level, Rights Respecting Schools Award and has retained 3 Green Flags. There are always 2 NHS nurses on site to support the children’s medical needs.
