Curriculum for Excellence

A curriculum which is fit for purpose and meets the needs of our pupils.

Our aim is to ensure that all pupils experience a broad general education which is a challenging, relevant curriculum which meets the individual needs of each of our pupils. The school has embraced Curriculum for Excellence and we promote learning across a wide range of contexts within the Curriculum for Excellence framework of experiences and outcomes.

We aim for our children to become:

  • Successful Learners
  • Confident Individuals
  • Responsible Citizens
  • Effective Contributors

 

 

We put our children at the centre of their education

We design a curriculum which is fit for purpose and meets the needs of our pupils.  We strive to ensure that our children are given learning opportunities which are stimulating, motivating and relevant for our pupils.  We encourage our children to have choice within their learning to ensure that their curriculum and learning experiences are highly personalised.

Pupil skills are developed through a wide range of curricular activities in the following areas:

  • Literacy and English
  • Mathematics
  • Health and Well being
  • Expressive Arts
  • Social Studies
  • Sciences
  • Technologies
  • Religious and Moral Education

 

 

Healthy learners

Personal and Social Education and Health in the Curriculum

Building independence


We work in partnership with our parents, carers and allied health professionals to support and build on the children’s awareness of personal hygiene, hazards and how to keep safe in school, home and the local community.  We encourage the children to make choices and to take on responsibilities wherever possible throughout the school day to promote independence and independent thinking.

Healthy Snacks
