I am delighted to welcome you to Lomond View Academy’s website. My name is Susan Chambers and I am the Virtual School Headteacher for Inverclyde, with responsibility for Lomond View Academy within that remit.
Whether you are a pupil, parent, or interested party I am hopeful you will find the handbook useful and will find the information you are looking for, however, please always feel free to contact the school directly if you have anything you wish to discuss. We are always pleased to have visitors to our school.
At Lomond View Academy we have made some significant changes to the delivery model we are using to support a range of pupils from across Inverclyde. These changes will widen the number of young people attending the school to provide them with appropriate learning experiences to support them to successfully return to their mainstream school, or in some cases to a positive destination post-school.
Part of this change has been the creation of an enhanced nurture provision, based in St Michael’s Primary this year to support a small number of primary aged pupils four mornings a week, as well as extending our support to include a model for those who have been unable to attend school for a significant period with a focus on re-engagement with their base school.
Our young people are thriving in these environments and we are developing strong partnerships that will assist with broadening the experiences offered. We have passionate and committed staff who have created a nurturing environment where we invest in positive relationships, develop self-esteem, and confidence, and provide a personalised education.
The very nature of our support recognises that young people can be here for a range of timescales. Whether it is for a few weeks or two years, we must work together to allow our pupils to access a full and individualised curriculum. We look forward to working with all our families in building an environment where we can celebrate the achievement of your child.
