A Curriculum for Excellence: Enlightening Videos for Parents!

The National Parent Forum of Scotland have been involved in the creation of some video resources aimed at demonstrating the benefits of our new and developing curriculum to parents. Please click on the materials below to see examples of the impact these new approaches have. There are video clips from the various stages your child will experience on their journey through nursery, primary and secondary education. We hope you find them of benefit and would very much appreciate it if you would recommend them to other parents too.

The text accompanying each video has been borrowed from the Scottish Government’s Engage for Education website. Please see http://www.engageforeducation.org/home/cfefilms/ for further links and information. 

Many thanks.
