Logan Primary School and Early Childhood Centre
• The ethos and life of the school as a community
Our curriculum develops a shared vision for Logan Primary School and Early Childhood Centre which values and has high expectations for all our young people placing our school at the centre of the community; improving the lives of our stakeholders. We engage in early intervention and targeted support to ensure the best outcomes for our young people. We utilise family learning opportunities to build learning partnerships and work intergenerationally to enrich our learning community providing opportunities for skills development for learning life and work. Our Team Around the COmmunity approach provides the wider support that families need to engage with education; providing access to services where they are needed and ensuring a reduction in the barriers to learning. We strive to create a learning community which spans from 8 weeks to 80 years.
• Curriculum areas and subjects
Our curriculum meets the needs of our individual Logan learners encompassing the design principles of the Curriculum for Excellence and striving for excellence and equity for all our stakeholders. It is a skills rich curriculum which is appropriate and meaningful to all our learners and develops skills for learning, life and work. Literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing are delivered across the curriculum in a range of context to maximise positive outcomes and help to close the attainment gap. All staff members are responsible for developing skills as learning is recognised beyond the classroom. Effective planning teaching and assessment ensure that teaching and learning strives to be of the highest quality with a variety of pedagogies being utilised to engage our young people.
• Learning for Sustainability through IDL
Our curriculum embeds Interdisciplinary learning which stimulates curiosity providing our learners with relevant and exciting learning contexts to develop skills for life- long learning, promoting health and wellbeing and to support a sustainable future through engagement with the United Nations Global Goals. By creating holistic and relevant context- based experiences and outcomes, in conjunction with our young people, both within and out with the classroom, we develop the skills they will need for an ever changing and potentially challenging future.
• Opportunities for personal achievement.
Our curriculum has a holistic approach to individual achievement, where everyone has the opportunity to shine and to recognise learning and growth where ever it takes place. Emphasis on the four CfE capacities recognises the values of citizenship and contribution and our wider achievement passports ensure that this is developed and recognised. Opportunities to develop the young workforce though community events , extra-curricular activities and business engagement sit alongside other learning to ensure that skills are transferable and that our young people are ready to achieve in the future.
