Prospect Bank School is a school for children with additional support needs in Leith area of Edinburgh. Prospect Bank caters for primary age learners with complex, long term additional support needs where the presumption of mainstream cannot be met. The needs of learners are primarily associated with learning disability and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
At Prospect Bank we have 6 classes, each class has a class teacher and support staff. Ratios of adults to children may vary as children develop their independence and confidence. Our classes are named after trees, we have Chestnut, Oak, Sycamore, Beech, Rowan and Willow.
We work in strong partnership with allied health professionals and are fortunate to have speech and occupational therapists based in school throughout the week.
Our learners play a key role in their own learning and we value our enthusiastic pupil council.
We are very proud of our health promoting school and eco school status. We are also working on becoming a Rights Respecting School
We follow a Curriculum for Excellence and provide a wide range of learning experiences for our learners to help enable them to reach their full potential. We aim to equip our children with the skills to become responsible citizens, successful learners, confident individuals and effective contributors. We value joint working with parents, carers, extended family and local community including links with mainstream schools.
We pride ourselves on our positive school ethos where we celebrate every individual’s success and we place a strong emphasis on a whole team approach to meeting the needs of our learners.
We have a supportive parent council who play a key role in school fundraising and planning for improvements. The parent council are always looking for new members; for more information on the role of the parent council please take a look at our parent council page. If you are able to help in any way, they would welcome your support.
We hope you find this website informative. We are a busy school with lots of exciting things going. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and come back again soon!
