Curriculum

The purpose of a Curriculum for Excellence is to ensure that all children in our school develop the attributes, knowledge and skills they will need if they are to flourish in life, learning and work, now and in the future. The aims of a Curriculum for Excellence are that every child should know they are valued and will be supported to become a successful learner, an effective contributor, confident individual and a responsible citizen. Teachers take account of global and international issues, enterprise and the impact on the environment when planning class topics.

Within a Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) learning and teaching is organised within 8 curricular areas:

• Literacy and languages (including French 1+2 programme for all pupils Nursery - P7)

• Mathematics and numeracy

• Health and wellbeing (including Physical Education)

• Sciences

• Social subjects

• Technologies

• Expressive arts (music, art, drama)

• Religious and moral education

Under CfE every child is entitled to a broad general education. This is planned for by the teacher, and involving pupils where appropriate, to ensure children are learning about their world, developing the necessary knowledge and understanding, skills and attributes to ensure their place in society for the future.
