Currently siutated alongside the Bridges building, the Dunfermline off Campus Centre aims to offer a localised and flexible provision to the four secondary schools in Dunfermline. This is dependant upon a suitable location being established within the town of Dunfermline in the future.
The Pupil Support Service was created in the summer of 2008 to develop services for young people with additional support needs in Fife. Its aim is to include pupils within their school and local communities who might otherwise be at risk of exclusion. The service is managed by a Head Teacher.
Currently, the Pupil Support Service serves around 120 pupils through the creation and delivery of personalised learning and support packages.
Access to the service is approved by the Mainstream School Support for Learning Group and then through an Admissions Group. All pupils remain on the School Role of the referring school and together, PSS and School link with other partner agencies in line with the ‘Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC)’ and ‘Staged Intervention’ models to offer appropriate multi-agency support packages.
Learning programmes are managed in partnership with mainstream schools. Pupils benefit from access to a mainstream curriculum but with the additional and intensive support provided by PSS. Within the multi-agency ‘team around the child’, the Pupil Support Service will improve the prospects for this group of disadvantaged pupils through improved attainment and achievement.
The Service has a staff of 60 across 5 bases, with 32 teachers and 23 Pupil Support Assistants.
