Curriculum for Excellence

Curriculum for Excellence aims to achieve a transformation in education in Scotland by providing a coherent, more flexible and enriched curriculum from 3 to 18. The curriculum includes the totality of experiences which are planned for children and young people through their education, wherever they are being educated.

 Learning begins at birth and continues throughout our lives. The Scottish Government education strategy  recognises that learning is lifelong, and aims to help learners develop the skills they need for learning, life and work. 

The curriculum aims to help every learner develop knowledge, skills and attributes for learning, life and work, which are encapsulated in the four capacities – to enable each child or young person to be a successful learner, a confident individual, a responsible citizen and an effective contributor. 

The school aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum in line with Curriculum for Excellence.  Teaching staff deliver learning and teaching experiences in line with the experiences and outcomes of Curriculum for   Excellence which has been implemented across all curricular areas since August 2010.
