John Jamieson School

John Jamieson is an open and welcoming, generic, all age Special School and National Teaching School which caters for pupils with a learning difficulty

Pastoral Organisation

All members of staff have a pastoral role, which ensures that each child receives the care and attention he/she needs.

The class teacher is usually the first point of contact with parents/carers and will be able to resolve many of the problems which arise.

A Coaching system enables us to know our young people even better, and meets the government recommendation that each child should have an identified adult who knows them well. Each pupil in High School and Post 16 is a member of a small Coaching group. They meet weekly to discuss a wide range of issues. Pupils remain with their small Coaching group throughout their life in High School and Post 16, so that they can establish a strong relationship with their coaches. As they get older, they become mentors for younger members in their Coaching group, thereby creating a caring family relationship.
