Curriculum

 

Curriculum for Excellence has been introduced to raise standards of learning and teaching for all 3 to 18 year olds.  It aims to help prepare children and young people with the knowledge and skills they need in a fast changing world.  

The aim of Curriculum for Excellence is to help every child become a successful learner, confident individual responsible citizen and an effective contributor.  These are known as the four capacities.  

Through our School Improvement Plan and the Cluster Improvement Plan (associated schools), staff in school are working at incorporating ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ Outcomes and the four Capacities of Curriculum for Excellence, i.e. Curriculum, Programmes of Work; Ethos; Ethos of Achievement; and Learning and Teaching styles.  The outcomes from ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ are progressive and continuous.
