The school is currently working on implementing the new ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ This new curriculum from 3-18 is built on the following four capacities that will enable all young people to become:

  • Successful learners
  • Confident individuals
  • Responsible citizens
  • Effective contributors

To achieve these purposes we will be looking at our environment for working, the choice of teaching and learning approaches and the ways in which learning is organised.

Along with colleagues from the other schools in the Grantown Associated School Group, we have been developing topic plans and programmes that reflect the new guidance. Designing the new curriculum is based on the following principles:

  • Challenge and enjoyment
  • Breadth
  • Progression
  • Depth
  • Personalisation and choice
  • Coherence
  • Relevance

Our aim is to provide a wide range of opportunities for learning.   The children’s learning experiences are linked where possible across the following curricular areas

The attached document outlines our approach to delivering the curriculum at Abernethy.
