What is the curriculum?
Curriculum for Excellence is Scotland’s curriculum for children and young people aged 3-18.
It’s an approach designed to provide young people with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need for learning, life and work in the 21st century.
It aims to enable every child or young person to be a:
- Successful learner (Resourcesful Rebecca)
- Confident individual (Resilient Rab)
- Responsible citizen (Reflective Roxy)
- Effective contributor (Relationship Maxi).
Our children are given regular opportunities to develop the skills and attributes of the above capacities with the support of our school Learning Powers.
The curriculum is broken down into eight curricular areas with experiences and outcomes being broken down into subject organisers. This allows staff to skillfully plan for a balanced, coherent curriculum. You can view how the learning is set out for each class in the below Long Term Overviews. This will give you a sense of the themes of learning across the school year.
