Curriculum for Excellence is intended to help children and young people gain the knowledge, skills and attributes needed for life, including skills for learning, life and work.
Here at Newark Primary we strive to help children develop the 4 capacities of the curriculum in order to become:
- Successful learners
- Confident individuals
- Responsible citizens and
- Effective contributors
The Curriculum is divided into 8 curricular areas. All of our lessons and learning activities are planned appropriately and ensure that children are given a variety of opportunities and experiences across all 8 areas. The areas are indicated below:
- Expressive arts
- Health and wellbeing
- Languages (including Modern Languages)
- Religious and moral education
- Social studies
Literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing are highlighted as they are recognised as being particularly important.
