Curriculum

The school curriculum takes account at all times of national and Perth and Kinross guidelines and children are given opportunities to gain confidence in investigating, tackling and solving problems in a wide range of contexts.  The curriculum covers:

 

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy and Mathematics
  • Contexts for Learning (awareness and care of their environment by learning about their locality, country and world in addition to history, current events, science and technology)
  • Health and Wellbeing (both physical and mental)
  • Expressive Arts
  • Religious and Moral Education

 

We have embedded the 1 plus 2 modern language initiative and our children will be learning French from P1 and will develop their French skills throughout their primary education.

 

Learning in health and wellbeing ensures that our children develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes which they will need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future. There are many aspects of health and wellbeing which contribute to this learning including Roots of Empathy, our Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood programme, opportunities to develop positive relationships with their peers and adults in our school and to build resilience and confidence through developing skills in making informed choices.

 

Through the introduction of the Daily Mile children are encouraged to extend their physical activity.
