our curriculumAt Whinhill Primary we operate a broad curriculum which offers opportunities for learning in all general areas. Various methods of teaching are carried out so that pupils are able to display their strengths and develop their full potential across the curriculum.

A new curriculum framework for all Scottish educational establishments 3 – 18, called Curriculum for Excellence, will offer better educational outcomes for all young people and will provide more choices and more chances for those young people who need them.
The aims of Curriculum for Excellence are that every child and young person should:

• Know they are valued and will be supported to become a successful learner, an effective contributor, a confidant individual and a responsible citizen;

• Experience a traditionally broad Scottish curriculum that develops skills for learning, skills for life and skills for work, with a sustained focus on literacy and numeracy, that encourages an active, healthy and environmentally sustainable lifestyle and builds an appreciation of Scotland and its place in the world.

The experiences and outcomes under Curriculum for Excellence are written at five levels, with progression to qualifications described under the senior phase.

Early Level – the pre school years and P1 later for some

First level – to the end of P4, but earlier for some

Second level – to the end of P7, but earlier for some

Third and Fourth – S1 to S3, but earlier for some

Senior phase – S4 – S6 and college or other means of study
