As you will know, children in S1 and S2 now have their learning framed by Curriculum for Excellence. They are embarking on the Broad General Education phase which runs from S1-S3. This offers a broad, deep, general education building on previous learning. Learners experience a wide range of subjects across eight curriculum areas – expressive arts, languages and literacy, health and wellbeing, mathematics and numeracy, religious and moral education, sciences, social studies, and technologies. This provides a good foundation for moving on to studying for qualifications, at the right level for the pupil, in the later stages of secondary.
The school is now actively preparing for the Senior Phase of Curriculum for Excellence (S4-6) and wishes to take into account the views of staff, pupils and parents/carers.
We held a Parents’ Information Evening in the school on Tuesday 8 November. The purpose of the evening was to share information and options for the Senior Phase, including the new examination framework, with parents and carers, and to listen to parental views on the way the school is planning for the Senior Phase. There was also the opportunity for parents and carers to ask questions.
Any parent or carer who is interested in this subject can download the materials presented on the evening.
For more information, please phone the school on 01698 285777 or email
Yours sincerely, C Stewart, Head Teacher
