Falkland House School
Special needs catered for
Falkland House School specialises in providing integrated education and care to boys on the Autistic Spectrum, with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, ADHD and Tourette’s Syndrome, as well as a number of other conditions.
Pupils in the Junior class stay with the Primary Teacher for most subjects, but will see specialist teachers in Science, Craft, Design and Technology, Music and Physical Education. A broad general curriculum is followed through S1 to S3 with a strong focus on practical, project based learning and teaching.
Senior pupils focus on discrete subject areas leading to SQA qualifications from National 2 to Advanced Higher level. Their education is designed to prepare them for college and the workplace. This is enhanced by a Throughcare Co-ordinator who ensures all S4 to S6 pupils experience college placements, work experience and are given comprehensive career guidance.
The school offers Peer mediation and support which provides pupils with the opportunity to develop skills in mediation, conflict resolution and restorative practices. Peer support offers pupils the opportunity of finding new ways to communicate and empathise. Sharing experiences and learning from others provides a positive school experience.
