We support primary aged pupils with a range of additional support needs.
CSSS Primary is housed within Park Primary, Alloa. We are an inclusive school and adopt a nurturing approach to engage our young people. We provide a bespoke curriculum for our pupils, providing each individual with opportunities to achieve and attain their full potential. Every child has an individualised education plan each term, targeting success across literacy, numeracy and health and well-being. We offer a range of learning experiences such as wall climbing, urban rebound, skiing, swimming and Bikeability.
Our highly skilled staff work closely with pupils to build positive relationships built on mutual respect. Pupils thrive in our small group learning environments to learn the necessary skills required to reintegrate back into mainstream education which is, ultimately, our long term goal.

The Blue Room is used as a classroom. It’s joined on to the kitchen so there is lots of space to learn and play. Mrs Richardson and Natalie work in this room with some of our P3 and P4 pupils. Lots of exciting learning and teaching happens in the Blue Room from science experiments to creating fact files on tablets!
Mrs Clark and Mrs Dryden work in the Pink Room with some of our P5 and P6 pupils. The Pink Room is our low stimulus room where pupils follow a task reward system and have their own rule of the week. Pupils in the Pink Room do lots of tasks from work on Spelling City to silent reading at their own desks.
Our office is a busy place with lots going on from Mrs Cashmore, our administrator, answering phone calls to Stevie, one of our support workers, shredding sheets of paper. As well as this, the office is used as a staff room. Photocopiers, telephones, keyboards, kettles, laughter… It’s a busy room! Nearly forgot…it also doubles up as a resource room. We’ve just had lovely new units fitted. Lucky us!
Some P6 and P7 pupils work in the Turquoise Room with Mr Stein, Mrs McNally and Sue. Lots of creative craft creations happen in this room as well as exciting enterprise experiences. We’ve made money by making and selling items from bookmarks to smoothies. This has helped a lot with our financial maths.
