The Curriculum

The curriculum followed in school follows the key principles of ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ which has been developed in response to the National Debate on Education. Teaching and learning through the new curriculum will provide opportunities to develop key capacities in pupils to become:

  • Successful learners
  • Confident individuals
  • Effective contributors
  • Responsible citizens

The focus is on active learning approaches throughout the curriculum.  The curriculum is a carefully planned programme designed to achieve the right balance of basic skills, essential knowledge and informed attitudes. The Curriculum for Excellence also promotes interdisciplinary approaches to learning. The curriculum includes:

  • languages & literacy
  • mathematics & numeracy
  • religious and moral education
  • health and well being
  • expressive arts
  • science
  • social subjects
  • technology (including ICT)
