At Prospect Bank School we follow the Curriculum for Excellence.

What is the Curriculum for Excellence?

Curriculum for Excellence provides the framework for learning for all children and young people in Scotland aged 3 to 18. It includes all of the experiences which are planned for learners, wherever they are being educated.

Developing skills and attributes

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

Many of our children require the curriculum to be adapted and the steps to achieving Curriculum for Excellence outcomes are carefully broken down into smaller steps. We use a wide variety of strategies to support all our learners to access the curriculum.

Individualised Educational Programmes

All of our children have Individualised Educational programmes, IEPs. We create individual targets for children for Literacy and Communication, Mathematics and Numeracy and Health & Wellbeing. These targets are set in collaboration with families and professionals who are working with the child. Our IEPs have a focus on life and daily living skills working towards our children being independent and reaching their full potential.

Interdisciplinary Learning

We have interdisciplinary learning topics on a wide variety of topics. We have four substantial topics every year with some additional smaller topics. All our classes take part in the same topic but each class plan their own journey through the learning. This joint learning makes a great learning environment where the classes share what they have been learning about with each other.
