Broad General Education
The curriculum in S1-3 is designed using the Experiences and Outcomes outlined in Curriculum for Excellence, and staff plan learning opportunities for students based on core principles. In S1-3, the curriculum is organised under the following areas:
- Literacy and English
- Numeracy and Mathematics
- Health and Wellbeing
- Social Studies
- Expressive Arts
- Religious and Moral Education
In S2 and S3, students have the opportunity to build personalisation and choice into their learning, and begin to form their individual learning pathway through the curriculum. This is possible through a variety of elective programmes which add depth to curricular programmes.
In S1-3 there are also a number of inter-disciplinary projects, where students have the opportunity to develop their learning across a number of subject areas. Effective interdisciplinary learning: can take the form of individual one-off projects or longer courses of study; is planned around clear purposes; is based upon experiences and outcomes drawn from different curriculum areas or subjects within them; ensures progression in skills and in knowledge and understanding; can provide opportunities for mixed-stage learning which is interest-based.
