Interdisciplinary Learning (IDL) is one of the four contexts within Curriculum for Excellence which states that: ‘The curriculum should include space/opportunities that enable children and young people to make connections between different areas of learning’ Curriculum for Excellence.
At Kemnay Academy, pupils in S1 and S2 personalise their curriculum by choosing from a range of stimulating, relevant and challenging IDL experiences. The IDL experiences enable our learners develop transferable skills while focusing on appropriately grouped experiences and outcomes, which gives them the opportunity to make meaningful connections between subject areas across the curriculum. In their curriculum, our pupils develop transferable skills for life, learning and work, with opportunities to visit places and work with visitors to our school.
If you would like to find out more or support our IDL experiences, please contact Mr C MacKenzie, PT Curriculum via the school office.
