Curricula

The following two curriculum frameworks guide our approach:

Pre-birth to 3 years

This supports our youngest children and sets out four features for effective practice:

  • Relationships, Emotional Well-being and Social Competence
  • Communication
  • Curiosity
  • Movement and Co-ordination

Curriculum for Excellence

The underpinning values for this are wisdom, justice, compassion and integrity, with the child at the centre of learning. The purpose of the curriculum is to enable the children to develop the ‘four capacities’ in order to become:

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

The curriculum has an unlimited scope for development and personal achievement through active learning. Experiences and outcomes are categorised into eight areas of learning:

  • Expressive arts
  • Language and literacy
  • Health and well-being
  • Mathematics and numeracy
  • Religious and moral education
  • Sciences
  • Social studies
  • Technologies
