Curriculum for Excellence is the name given to the new curriculum in Scotland for all children
and young people aged 3-18.
It is a forward looking, coherent, more flexible and enriched curriculum that provides young people with the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need if they are to flourish in life, learning and work, now and in the future.
The curriculum includes all of the experiences that are planned for children and young
people to support the development of their skills, wherever they are being educated, for
example in the family and community, pre-school centre, nursery and school. This broad,
general education will allow them to become successful learners, confident individuals,
responsible citizens and effective contributors to life in the 21st century.
In taking this forward our school will work closely with South Lanarkshire Education
Resources and other services to enable Curriculum for Excellence to be fully embedded,
ensuring the best possible education for all children and young people. We wish you to feel
confident that your child is encouraged and supported to develop their literacy, numeracy
and other skills whilst they attend our school. The curriculum areas are as follows:
Languages and literacy
Health and wellbeing
Mathematics and numeracy
Religious and moral education
