In Saint Peter the Apostle High School, our Curriculum for Excellence Steering Group comprises 22 staff from a wide range of curriculum areas and with a significant range of expertise and experience. Established at the start of the session, the group meets regularly (at least once a month) to take a strategic view of how Curriculum for Excellence is becoming embedded in our school community.
Working to overtake the targets outlined in our school improvement plan, the group has sub-divided into a number of focus groups including: -
- Interdisciplinary Learning
- Literacy Across Learning
- Numeracy Across Learning
- Health and Wellbeing Across Learning
- Wider Achievement
- Primary Transition Group
- Publicity Group
These focus groups comprise a further range of colleagues across departments who are not Steering Group members but who have a particular interest and/ or expertise in the work of specific focus groups. Since August 2009, our focus groups have undertaken a range of ambitious projects to ensure that our school community develops confidently towards the full implementation of Curriculum for Excellence.
