Primary Curriculum at St George's
At St George's Junior School, we aim to promote a love of learning and to develop intellectual curiosity.
We have a wealth of experience and expertise enabling us to offer a varied and exciting curriculum, based on the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, with planned progression and continuity a key benefit of an all-through school, across all year groups.
Our curriculum is based on the eight curricular areas of Literacy and Languages, Numeracy & Mathematics, Social Studies, Sciences, Health and Well-being, Religious and Moral Education, Expressive Arts and Technologies.
Specialist Support for Learning staff work with the class teachers assisting pupils in the development of early literacy and numeracy. Our early intervention programme covers Lower Primary (P1 and P2 pupils) where Additional Support for Learning staff work closely in liaison with class teachers to consolidate and reinforce classwork to ensure all our pupils have a good foundation for literacy and numeracy.
The curriculum throughout St George's was commended as 'excellent' (sector-leading) in the latest inspection report by Education Scotland. We achieved the same impressive grade for improvements in performance (achievement and attainment) and improvement through self-evaluation.
