Park Mains High School has embraced the principles and practice of Curriculum for Excellence from the outset of this development. The implementation of CfE is a building process which begins in the secondary school in S1 while at the same time taking account of the previous CfE experiences of pupils in our associated primaries and the developments going on in P7.
Subject departments have conducted audits on the S1-3 CfE content and constructed courses accordingly, putting into practice teaching methodologies to enhance the learning taking place, [eg ‘Active’ learning, co-operative learning (etc)] as well as the development of inter-disciplinary projects. This session we are working on extending CfE into S4.
