Programes of Study
Each Programme of Study offers some support for pupils who are at the Early Stages of Learning.
All pupils will have the opportunity to learn how to remain safe and healthy throughout the curriculum.
Pupils working P1-P4 have targets set from the Routes for Learning curriculum. Within this pupils will have the opportunity to Respond, Interact, Explore, Solve Problems, Communicate using a range of techniques and technology.
Generally, the Programmes of Study have been developed to support pupils who are working from around P4 and above. Pupil’s personal interests and learning styles will always be taken into consideration when planning for classroom sessions. Curriculum leaders will offer guidance through Medium Term Planning and on-going consultation with staff.
