Scotland has one of the most progressive education systems in the world. The Scottish curriculum is designed to help children and young people gain the knowledge, skills and attributes needed for life in the 21st century. It does this by placing learners at the heart of education.

At its centre of Scottish Education are four fundamental capacities. These capacities reflect and recognise the lifelong nature of education and learning. The four capacities are aimed at helping children and young people to become:

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

The curriculum in Scotland is defined as the totality of all that is planned for children and young people from early learning and childcare, through school and beyond. That totality can be planned for and experienced by learners across four contexts:

  1. Curriculum areas and subjects
  2. Interdisciplinary learning
  3. Ethos and life of the school
  4. Opportunities for personal achievement.

This is done through the creation of a coherent learner journey.

This showcase will highlight how at Kingussie High School, we have successfully raised attainment (above the local and national average) through innovative approaches to curriculum design, celebrating student achievement, introducing learner pathways and the integration of project-based and outdoor learning to create highly personalized learning pathways for young people.
