Primary Schools

Tullochan has developed bespoke primary school programmes for pupils P2-P7 in a number of schools across West Dunbartonshire. Our experienced development teams provide bespoke programmes to meet the needs of pupils and schools. We have provided additional learning opportunities for young people including support for those who are at risk of disengaging from their education.

Our programmes have included sessions on transitioning from primary to secondary school, John Muir Awards, day trips and RSPB learning. Tullochan primary programmes are designed to ensure that pupils are receiving a variety of engaging learning experiences and environments.

During the 2018/19 school year we have delivered programmes in the following primary schools:

Knoxland, St. Michael’s, Braehead, St Patrick’s, Balloch, St. Peter’s, St Ronan’s, Aitkenbar, Braehead, Lennox, St. Martin’s, St. Mary’s, St. Kessog’s, Renton and Christie Park.

Please contact us if your school would like to discuss programme opportunities.

FEEDBACK: Primary Schools

Helen Brown Head Teacher at Knoxland Primary, “At Knoxland we greatly value the partnership we have been developing with Tullochan.  They have provided an excellent service in supporting us in promoting achievement opportunities in the school.  All our P2 pupils have been supported in achieving the RSPB Bronze Wild Award where they have really enjoyed experiencing the outdoors, whatever the weather, to learn about nature.  The experienced staff from Tullochan have also been running a Youth Club which has offered our children fun, after school activities that give our children a voice in their own learning.  The partnership has been a great asset to school life”

Joanne Paton Head Teacher at Braehead Primary, “Tullochan is providing support for a number of our pupils.  They work together in a safe and very happy environment where they can develop social skills, learn about keeping safe and build positive relationships with each other.”

Secondary Schools

Tullochan has delivered programmes in all five secondary schools across West Dunbartonshire for a number of years supporting young people to remain engaged in their education. In the 2019/20 school year we are working with S1-S3 and senior phase pupils at Vale of Leven Academy. We are an SQA approved centre and have consistently delivered qualifications and programmes that match the needs of young people we support. The success of our programmes is also illustrated by the number of young people who choose to continue engaging with us in our weekly after school club. 

FEEDBACK: Secondary Schools

The way she is in Tullochan is the way I would like to see her in other classes, being more confident

I know from experience the work that Tullochan does can change people’s lives and love the fact he has someone he can talk to and learn these things from

He doesn’t have a strong positive male role model at home, so it’s good to spend time with people where he can learn responsibility

Tullochan is a long-standing and major partner of Vale of Leven Academy, providing group work for pupils who need extra support at every stage from S1 to S5/6. Sessions run throughout the school year focusing on a wide range of skills for learning, life and work. SQA and other awards help to motivate pupils, while Tullochan staff build a strong rapport with pupils boosting their confidence and social skills.  Tullochan staff play a full part in the school’s Joint Agency Team and work closely with pupil support staff. Their work is often a key element in a pupil’s support plan. Tullochan staff keep parents up-to-date and regularly attend parents’ meetings. Some pupils now progress in the latter stages of their school career to Tullochan’s Employability programme. For many of our pupils who need extra support, Tullochan group work provides an enjoyable, supportive and effective intervention, leading to increased engagement and better outcomes. We value their work very highly.”
