CfE Pupil Passport
In session 2011 - 12, all S1 and S2 pupils were given a Curriculum for Excellence Pupil Passport to record examples of where they were developing skills in literacy, numeracy and health and well being during one school week. Each pupil had to identify at least two examples of activities they had been involved in during their lessons (out with English and Maths) which had developed their skills. Pupils then visited Passport Control (the school library) to get their passports verified with a stamp. House points were then awarded to pupils who completed at least two examples in each section.
This initiative was aimed at helping pupils to recognise when and how they are developing their skills in literacy, numeracy and health and well being. From discussion and research in school it was clear that pupils were very confident in describing activities across the curriculum that we recognise as literacy, numeracy or health and well being; however, they were less confident in recognising this themselves. The Passport would enable pupils to develop these skills.
Following the success of the Passport, this initiative is running again in session 2012 - 13. After feedback from staff and pupils, some small changes have been made and it is hoped that pupils will have a greater understanding of the ways in which literacy, numeracy and health and well being are embedded in our curriculum.
We have also launched a new literacy, numeracy and health and well being initiative for 2012 - 13. Pupils are randomly selected to identify how they have developed their literacy, numeracy and health and well being and their ideas will be posted on our new interactive mobile display board being developed and produced by staff and pupils in the Design and Technology Department.
