2 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

3  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.
