“It takes a whole village to raise a child.”

 A Shared Vision

At Coupar Angus Primary we ensure that all children develop the attributes, knowledge and skills they will need to achieve of their best in life, learning and work.

They will be able to demonstrate the four capacities to become –

  1. Successful Learners
  2. Confident Individuals
  3. Effective Contributors
  4. Responsible Citizens

Children will learn through the four contexts for learning –

  1. Interdisciplinary Learning
  2. Opportunities for Personal Achievement
  3. Ethos and Life of the School as a Community
  4. Curriculum Areas and Subjects

Our curriculum reflects the seven Principles of design –

Breadth    Progression      Depth    Personalisation and Choice

Challenge and Enjoyment     Coherence        Relevance
