We provide balanced programmes of learning within appropriate curriculum frameworks of A Curriculum for Excellence, which are interrelated, progressive, coherent, relevant and differentiated.
We aim for all of our pupils to experience high quality active learning and teaching approaches which are purposeful, engaging, challenging and which encourage creativity. We ensure that, wherever possible, real contexts and purposes are provided for learning. We cater for varying needs, abilities and learning styles and encourage independent learning.
We help children fulfil their potential by setting challenging but realistic attainment goals, supported by consistent and positive approaches to assessment and self–reflection.
