The curriculum in Scotland is built on the values of wisdom, justice, compassion and integrity. It has been recognised that all children and young people should develop skills for life, skills for learning and skills for work which will prepare them for a world that is changing very fast.  The curriculum in our school will continue to develop over coming years to ensure that all our children become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.

We are in an exciting and challenging time as we endeavour to further develop and embed a Curriculum for Excellence. To achieve its four capacities and seven principles we will continue to employ a range of teaching strategies, strive to build effective relationships with parents and other agencies and endeavour to promote collaborative working.

In all areas of the curriculum, equal opportunities are offered to all children, irrespective of difference in sex, nationality or creed. Each child is offered a wide and varied range of subjects and will be encouraged to achieve the highest possible standard throughout.

We are currently developing Cooperative Learning and Critical Skills strategies and further implementing the Assessment is for Learning philosophy.

We are currently undertaking significant curricular development in our Gaelic Medium department, with new literacy pathways having been created in 2022.
