Uddingston Grammar School CfE Parental Presentation PARENTAL PRESENTATION
What is the vision for CfE – Nationally and in Uddingston Grammar ? CfE Parental Presentation The National Vision Curriculum for Excellence seeks to empower learners and practitioners by removing constraints to learning and teaching. By ensuring a broad, general education for 3 to 15, it is hoped that young people will have learned the intrinsic skills, the knowledge and its application to problem solving required to undertake the new National examinations in S4/5/6. Uddingston Grammar Vision We will empower young people to learn by engaging with them in a variety of different methods and contexts We will ensure our young people have a broad based education which prepares them for the rigours of National Qualifications and wider achievement
Yes and No. The Vision and Principles are the same Both are based on improving outcomes for young people CfE proposes a broad general based education until the end of S3 – we are not. CfE proposes 2 tiers in a school, the Junior Phase (S1-3) and the Senior Phase (S4-6) – we are not. CfE proposes all courses are 160 hours long – we are not. CfE suggests all courses are OPTIONAL after S3 – we are not. CfE proposes that you sit 5/6 Nationals in S4 – we are not. CfE Parental Presentation
We propose to begin the Nationals phase at the end of S2, not at the end of S3. We propose maintaining a ‘transition’ phase between S3 and S5. We propose maintaining English, Maths and PE as core (along with RMPS and PSHE) until the end of S4, with English until the end of S5. We propose to increase the amount of time available to teach a National presenting in S4. We propose to offer 7/8 or 9 Nationals in S4. CfE Parental Presentation
