Curriculum for Excellence

The Curriculum for Excellence has four main objectives for pupils. These are to create:

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

The guidelines for Curriculum for Excellence are available to look at on the Education Scotland website.

Nursery-P7 Curriculum

Each child in the school will develop at his or her own rate. This development takes place through individual and group learning as well as through class teaching. To assist in the planning of the curriculum staffs use National Guidelines as well as authority and school policies. This ensures a structured progression of learning from age 3 through to Primary 7.

At the beginning of each term the class teachers send home a class newsletter which outlines the teacher’s expectations and informs parents of the learning in the term ahead so that they know what to expect and will be able to assist their child.

Throughout the year parents can look at the See Saw website to see the learning that their child is undertaking.  There are also regular open mornings and afternoons throughout the session where pupils can share their work with their parents.  Parents will be invited to parent interviews in October and in May. A written annual report will be given to parents in May. In addition to this, parents should not hesitate to contact the school if they wish to discuss any thoughts or concerns related to their child.
