The Pupil Support Department provides support for pupils who have a range of needs relating to their emotional and social wellbeing within school. The pupils identified may work within the service for their entire school career [S1-S6]or receive some short term support.

Excellent liaison systems are in place with primary colleagues and partner agencies. The combination of professional experience coupled with the commitment for inclusion and support for every young person within ASN can go some way to reassure parents and carers at all transition stages. Parent and carer contact is vital and welcomed

Classroom support can be provided by a team of Pupil Support Assistants who are experienced in forming positive and meaningful relationships with pupils in their care. Links with Psychological Serivces, Social Work and the Childrens Hearing System are key strands of departmental work

The ethos of the department has care, commitment and can-do as its focus. Nurturing approaches, both group and individualised are used.

Staff expertise ranges from postgraduate and research work in Autistic Spectrum diagnoses[twenty years plus],breadth of knowledge in learning styles, dyslexia, and mental health in an educational context. The department has developed further with the growth of emphasis upon Outdoor Education and Flexible Curriculum opportunities for all students within the department.

Partner colleagues include Psycholgical Services and the Sensory Service who form an integral part of the ASN team.
