About Our School


 School Mission Statement

We are committed to helping all our students reach their full potential by fostering a common vision which embraces faith formation, teaching and learning, personal and social development and partnership between the school and the wider community.


Curriculum for Excellence

The Scottish Government has published short films on Curriculum for Excellence for parents. The films illustrate, in learners, parents and teachers’ own words, the kind of impact and benefit that Curriculum for Excellence is having across the country.

The films contribute towards the Cabinet Secretary’s CfE Action Plan 2011/12 commitment to develop new materials for parents illustrating the benefits of Curriculum for Excellence, following calls for such resources from parents. They have been developed in co-operation with the National Parent Forum of Scotland.

The films can be viewed on www.engageforeducation.org/cfefilms.
