A Curriculum for Excellence

Education Scotland says

The purpose of the curriculum is encapsulated in the four capacities – to enable each child or young person to be a successful learner, a confident individual, a responsible citizen and an effective contributor.6930723_orig

The curriculum aims to ensure that all children and young people in Scotland develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need if they are to flourish in life, learning and work, now and in the future.

At Gorebridge Primary, we have worked to ensure our teaching and learning experiences promote these four capacities. We have tailored our Higher Order Curriculum Map to ensure our pupils engage with the curriculum in a way which provides

  • challenge and enjoyment
  • breadth
  • progression
  • depth
  • personalisation and choice
  • coherence
  • relevance
