Welcome to our new website. The leadership team, teaching staff and support staff at Whitehill are deeply committed to our responsibility to make a difference to the life chances of every child attending our school. Knowing that you share this commitment, this website and our handbook has been designed to ensure that you can easily access information regarding our ethos, curriculum, opportunities and services that have been designed with your child’s development in mind. Please don’t hesitate to contact the school or check the school website if you need more information.
I and my staff aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which your child can grow, learn and develop. The resources, services and opportunities outlined in these pages are just some of the ways in which we will provide that environment. Our overarching aim is to ensure all children in our care are safe, happy and achieving their potential. We know how critical it is that, during their time with us, your children realise the highest possible levels of academic attainment and achievement. To ensure that we prepare our young people to take their places in society as hardworking and responsible citizens, we will also ensure that they have opportunities and experiences that will equip them with the life skills necessary to grow and develop in our increasingly complex society. Our handbook will describe some of the opportunities available to our young people and what skills they will develop from participation.
It also aims to provide you with information regarding our young people’s attainment, achievements and to describe our continued commitment to our community and business partnerships. Our improvement priorities will continue to focus on the implementation and enactment of a Curriculum for Excellence to ensure that all young people fulfill their potential. 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. Our curriculum aims to help every learner develop knowledge, skills and attributes for learning, life and work.
